If You Score Less Than 70% On This Test, You've Probably Never Given Birth

Childbirth is a truly unique event during which a new form of life comes into existence. It's miraculous how a pregnant woman goes from carrying a tiny human being inside her belly to clutching it at her breast.

However, childbirth can also be somewhat nerve-racking, especially if the woman that is giving birth is doing so for the very first time.

It's hard to understand everything that is going on. Luckily, more often than not, experienced doctors and caring nurses are there to guide them through the (sometimes very challenging) process.

The below quiz tests everyone's knowledge on childbirth. Those who have never given birth have a very slim chance of passing this quiz with flying colors. On the other hand, those who have been blessed with a kid or two should find the below questions ridiculously easy!
