We are led to understand that the process of delivering a baby can be somewhat difficult. Fortunately, for expectant mothers everywhere, inventors George and Charlotte Blonsky have come to the rescue with a revolutionary method for inducing and facilitating labor.
The Blonskys received a patent (U.S. Patent number 3,216,423) for an “Apparatus for facilitating the birth of a child by centrifugal force.” The concept is strikingly similar to that of centrifugal force amusement park rides that spin passengers around at a high rate of speed.
In the Blonsky device, mothers are strapped into a bed at the edge of a spinning wheel. As the speed of rotation increases, so does the g-force. If all goes well, a baby will soon emerge.
Presumably, doctors and nurses are stationed around the spinning device with catchers’ mitts, ready to grab any infant who comes flying out of the swirling vortex.
