BOSTON – “Tootsie Roll” could very well be a baby’s first words after the mother danced to the song during labor.

On Tuesday, a soon-to-be mom found a creative and entertaining way to beat the pains of labor.

While awaiting the birth of their second child at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Connell Cloyd recorded and uploaded a video to Facebook, where his wife Yuki Nishizawa is shown doing the butterfly, side shuffle, two step and other dance moves to the delight of the nursing staff.

Nishizawa is seen looking radiant as she laughs away and alleviates the stress and pain of childbirth.

At one point in the video, you can hear Nishizawa saying her “water is breaking.”

“I know I shouldn’t be laughing, as a husband,” Cloyd said. “But, she said she wanted to be famous, so I guess this is how you do it – doing the ‘Tootsie Roll’ in labor.”

The video has been watched over 400,000 times and shared nearly 8,000 times.
