It describes the preparation needed and the tension and stresses of the big day.

Patrick does list some of the sacrifices that have been made for Benji, but points out that it is all worth it.

The video is professionally produced, with great graphics and soundtrack to set the tone. Patrick does the voiceover himself.

Patrick named the video Labour Day, after all it is about the birth of Benji. Patrick uses his film-making skill to create an emotional video whilst also keeping the mood light by taking a look at childbirth from a father’s point of view.
