Japanese Governors Put On Pregnancy Vests To Encourage Men To Help Out More At Home

Women don't have it easy during pregnancy. Apart from feeling nauseous and having morning sickness, they'll also have joint pains, hormonal changes and have to navigate around with a constantly growing weight, among others. It's something only women can attest to and beyond the imagination of men.

That's precisely why 3 governors from the southern prefectures of Japan done an artificial pregnancy suits while executing their daily tasks, as part of a campaign to raise awareness of what women in labor have to go through.

The 16 pound (7.26 kg) suit comes with a baby bump as well and resembles what a 7-month pregnant lady has to go through.

According to the video, a survey conducted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development  (OECD) revealed that Japanese men were the most unhelpful in the world when it comes to sharing chores and parenting duties.
