A mother who tried to dance away her labor pain is getting a lot of attention online.

Laughter may be the best medicine for most people, but for Yuki Nishizawa dancing may be her cure.

When she went into labor, she decided to start grooving. Now, the video is all anyone can talk about on Facebook.

Her dances of choice are Tootsie Roll and The Cupid Shuffle.

Her husband recorded her moves and posted it online Wednesday. It had more than 3,000,000 views in 24 hours.

Dr. Kira Cooley, an OBGYN in Memphis, said she's never heard of dancing curing labor pain, but she's not ruling out the possibility.

"It's definitely something for us to think about in the future," Dr. Cooley said. "Every thing is different from patient to patient."

Dr. Cooley went on to say there is no research to prove The Cupid Shuffle will help bring babies into the world. But if it makes you feel better, why not?

    You'd think 28 wins over the last three years would enough for a program to feel pretty good about itself going into a new college football season, especially for a program that had trouble just sniffing any victories a few season ago.
