"I was in there with my wife, trying to do the right thing holding her hand, giving her words of encouragement. Next minute, I'm sitting on the floor out cold... today I still cop it!"

However, they weren't all funny, with their last male caller chillingly explaining the genuine emotional trauma they suffered (and continues to experience) following the birth of his child, and it's not what you would expect.
