That I can understand, I always dreaded the thought of childbirth ever since I was about 4y/o and saw a doc coming out of a room after much screaming, where my mother was, with blood all over his hands . Psychological damage of that nature stays with you for a very long time.
I'd imagine 30lbs would really wreack havoc on the body, that'd be the equivalent to carrying a 16kg KB around with you.
