Dad-to-be and Sympathetic Pregnancy

Do you know what is the “couvade” syndrome? I didn’t know anything about it until I saw this article in, run by nutrition consultant Kathryn Flynn. It talks about men going through the same pregnancy symptoms as their pregnant wives. I personally think that it is great if a man’s empathy for his pregnant wife’s condition is to such an extent that he “literally” feels her pain and all her symptoms. Perhaps such men are few and rare, but truly remarkable.
