Seems to me that both of these are old Borscht Belt jokes, but who am I to judge?
A midwife calls a doctor
“Doctor she’s been in labor for 36 hours we need to do a c section.” “Not so fast,” says the doctor “there’s one more thing to try”
He goes to the obviously pained mother to be and says “what do you call maids in space.”
After the woman gives him a blank stare the doctor says “Vacuum cleaners”
Upon hearing this joke the woman cringes so hard that she expels the healthy crying baby.
Relieved the new mother says “Thank you doctor but that’s the worst joke I ever heard”
The doctor smiled and said “the punchline sucks but the delivery was perfect”
