I wish it was this easy... from funny

Childbirth is no easy feat, and women are incredible, badass beings for being able to grow and birth another human being from their own bodies. But artist Chris Simpsons seems to think childbirth is a bit *easier* than it is. In his hilarious book The Story of Life ($11, originally $15), there's a page all about how babies are born, and it's a little, well, off?

"I wish it was this easy . . . ," Reddit user WarmWetWilly captioned the photo. On the page, a woman can be seen crouching down in the Malasana yoga pose, saying, "Out you come little one," while a baby — saying, "Thank you" (lol) — crawls away behind her. "When the baby is ready to be born the woman will crouch down and let the newborn crawl out of her so it can finally be released into the wild," the page reads.

We're currently cackling at this, but seriously, who do we call about making it work like this?
