The arrival of your baby is one of the happiest and most exciting moments for you and your partner.
But one pregnant woman was left fuming when her husband said that he wanted his brother to watch her give birth because he is a medical student.
“I’m currently 31 weeks with twins, a boy and a girl. My husband and I are both 21, and were trying for a baby for about a year before we fell pregnant,” she wrote on Reddit.
“I’ve had a pretty rough pregnancy, and my brother-in-law is a medical student, so he’s taken quite a lot of interest in my pregnancy and future delivery. We’ve always gotten on well. He’s 24,” the woman continued.
“I’ve known my husbands family since we were children so we’ve pretty much grown up together.
“A few days ago, my husband told me that my brother in law had expressed an interest in being there whilst I gave birth, mainly due to it being beneficial from an educational standpoint to see a natural multiples birth, which is what I’m planning for.”
She went on: “I said absolutely not, there is no way in hell I am allowing that. I’m not even overly keen on allowing my husband to watch me go through that, let alone his brother.
“He said it’d be a good experience for him and his degree and I said that as much as I supported him, my experience of having a pleasant birth was my priority.
“He got defensive and said he should be allowed to have a support person too, which I suppose I do understand, but I really just feel uncomfortable about it all.”
Internet users were quick to share their opinions, with one person writing: “Tell him no and mean no.”
Another wrote: “Tell him that if he is willing to get naked, lay on the dining room table, grab his ankles, and let your dad stare at his a****le for an hour then you will THINK about letting his brother in the delivery room.
“Birth is hard enough, don’t let him bully you into this.”
A third said: “I am so so so angry for you. I don’t want to overstep, but if you were my IRL bestie I’d be asking if this is really the type of person you want to spend the rest of your life with.”
