Back in June, Canadian actress Shay Mitchell and boyfriend Matte Babel announced they’re expecting a baby, and the former “Pretty Little Liars” star has been chronicling their pregnancy journey in her YouTube series “Almost Ready”.

With the couple’s baby due in October, the latest episode finds the pair having a heart-to-heart about whether or not she should be given an epidural if the pain of labour becomes too much for her to bear.

As it turns out, Mitchell, 32, is open to the idea, but Babel, 38, is opposed.

“I’ve been thinking a lot about this birth plan and I feel like we need to be more on the same page with this,” Mitchell tells Babel. “You say no epidural, I say epidural.”

“Am I partial to no epidural? Yes,” he replies. “Why? Because I’m a hypochondriac. I’m afraid of drugs. My mom didn’t use an epidural… I meet women all the time who didn’t choose to use epidurals.

Mitchell compares an epidural to receiving anesthesia before a painful dental procedure. “Would you get a root canal without any drugs?” she says. “You’re in excruciating pain and I’m holding the medicine like this and I’m like, ‘You can have it and it wouldn’t do any harm, but you don’t want it. Do you want to be a fighter? Fight through it.'”

Babel, however, doesn’t see that as an apt analogy. “A root canal is not comparable because you’re not born to go through a root canal,” he responds. “As a woman, your body is genetically engineered to give birth.”

“Well listen,” she quips. “Next time, you can do this.”

In order to give him a crash course in what she’s been going through, she offers Babel a way to experience pregnancy for himself: a 30-pound fake pregnancy belly he can wear while they take a hike.

“Most men don’t understand what it’s like to be pregnant and that can be frustrating, especially when they have opinions on how we should navigate labor and postpartum,” writes Mitchell in the synopsis for the episode. “Luckily, I think I found a way for Matte to walk in my shoes… as least for a minute.”
