While most women take childbirth very seriously, one mum has seen the lighter side of the ordeal. Katie Curtis decided to poke fun at the experience, donning a Chewbacca mask during labour, which translated her screams of pain into Shyriiwook, the language of the Wookiees in Star Wars. Classic! 

Following the birth of her son Jayden, the Detroit mum shared her experience with the world, posting the video to Facebook. Alongside the video she wrote: “Just because I’m about to be a mom doesn’t mean I have to grow up! Bwahahahahs never take life too seriously! Best Christmas gift ever!”

The video has since gone viral, gaining over 70,000 views and hundreds of comments. It’s not the first time a video containing the mask has set tongues wagging. Last year, a video of US mum Candace Payne created headlines, when she was filmed wearing the mask in a parked car and couldn’t stop laughing.

We think Kate made have topped her!
