  3. Wha ha ha!!!! YES!!! I do also tend to press the words on the book to find the meaning. I laughed so hard now.

    Never heard of parturition and would never have made the connection to the word.

    1. It is! I love learning new words though I’m not sure I’ll use this again as I’ve done it twice and that’s enough!

  6. If you had asked me if I knew what this meant I would have said no, but after seeing the definition I did know it somewhere in the back of my head. I think from dog breeding textbooks. 🐩

  7. Women who are giving birth in France are called "parturientes" in medical books, so I could have guessed - but it's not an usual word !
