Pregnant Woman Asks If She Is In The Wrong For Not Letting Her MIL In The Delivery Room

A birth can be a stressful process.

It might be a beautiful thing to give birth to another human being but it is also messy and painful. Not only that but one feels very vulnerable when the time comes for delivery so it is important to have people who trust you right beside you alongside the doctor. It may not seem like an important thing but it very much is since everyone wants the birth to go smoothly. So there is nothing wrong with wanting your parents or your significant other in the room for support.

Well, this seems like a simple thing but it apparently causes a lot of problems between family members. It is usually because the mother-in-law wants to be there as well but there is never enough space for every to squish into the room. Hospitals usually only allow two close people in the room with the mother. So it is not uncommon to see their significant other and their parent. I can understand the mother-in-law wanting to see the baby being born but it is not a spectator sport and the decisions should fall on the person giving birth.

This particular husband isn’t having any of that and refuses to listen to reason. You can read the whole story for yourself by scrolling below.

Right fon the start, we can tell that she has had enough of this and wants some genuine advice.

She is clearly fine with the mother-in-law being there but she also wants her mother and husband in the room.

The Hospital only allows two people so it is not surprising that the mother-in-law can’t be in there.

Rather than listening to what she was saying, the guy decided to stay at a friend’s house for a while.

She also posted a minor update where she rethinks a lot of her choice leading to this.

I am surprised by how childish the husband acted in this instance. Pregnancy can be hard on the body and your hormones get messed up as well. So rather than supporting her throughout this difficult time, he decided to stress her out even more. I always say that communication is key and that you should give it a fair go before calling it quits but this is something else. I can only hope it turns out alright for her.

People in the comments unsurprisingly took her side.

Most of them even called out the husband for acting childish.

Few pointed out why having a parent in the room is necessary at times.

He really should understand where she is coming from.

This is not the time to throw a fit but he decided to do that anyway.

This comment sums up everything perfectly.
