A video of a pregnant woman dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to induce labor has gone viral.
Bonnie Northsea, of Florida, was 40 weeks pregnant when a a friend reportedly told her dancing would help induce labor. So after hitting her due date, she followed her friend’s advice.
“Someone told me that thriller would induce labor. Here I am on my due date 40 weeks, February 11, 2015, looking like a fool…LOL. My Facebook video has 55,000 views after 24 hours, so I thought I would place on YouTube as well. My husband is fighting a battle with Testicular Cancer (just diagnosed a month ago) so it has been difficult emotionally recently. This video really helped as it has caused me to laugh over and over again.”, she wrote on her YouTube channel.
Her “Thriller” video, which she originally posted just to entertain her own Facebook friends, has also helped her lighten her mood. Northsea’s husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer about a month ago and is undergoing chemotherapy treatments, and the family has been struggling financially.
The video has already reached more than 2 million views a week after it was uploaded.
