Solution

Couvade refers to a strange sacred birth custom prevalent in tribes like Gonds and Khasi. Under this kinship, the husband has to lead a life of an invalid, along with his pregnant wife. He has to refrain from doing any active physical work and has to go on a sick diet. He is also expected to follow the same taboos as are observed by his wife.
