“Baby #1 had some sanitary accidents due to the force of squeezing and K vomited into the bin next door and there was this vomit smell that lingered for a few moments until they got it out.
“At the time of delivery she passed out on the floor from the blood due to the pressure relieving and having to stay on an IV while I was in the final moments of labor and managed to come back just 5 minutes after our baby was born.
“Baby #2 was like that.
“In our third pregnancy, she couldn’t even begin to see it down there, but it was so hot there and it was so emotional. Result? She was on an IV again.”
Now that the wife is pregnant again, she has decided that she doesn’t want her wife with her in the delivery room because she doesn’t want to deal with the added stress of making sure she’s okay while trying to support her at the same time to give birth to a baby.
But her decision also means replacing her wife with her mother – which has left her partner “shocked” and upset.
She added: “I really understand this situation, but at the same time it’s too stressful and distracting for me. I can’t have my moment and instead of fully enjoying the birth of our baby, I’m also worried about K because she passed out.
“For a while my wife commented on how worried she was about the upcoming birth and that she was crossing her fingers that she didn’t pass out again.
“Today I was honest and told her I didn’t want her to be in the delivery room because it’s going to be very stressful. I told her that she could be outside on the couch as soon as the baby was born she would come in and that I would like my mother to be in her place because I need someone in the final moments.
“She looked shocked but said okay and went to work. It wasn’t even 30 minutes before my in-laws started texting me that this was the most selfish and mean thing I had ever done and that K was heartbroken.”
However, commentators on the Reddit post have largely sided with the pregnant woman, as many of them indicated that she has the final say over who is in the delivery room with her.
One person wrote: “I understand her feelings are hurt but she’s been through it 3 times now and can’t handle it on any level. You get stressed and you have to worry about your wife’s health, which is the last thing you need in the last stages of labour.”
While another added: “You are going to give birth and you have the right to set boundaries during childbirth.”
