Mom-to-be asks for advice from Quora users after her husband forced her to allow in-laws in the delivery room. Of course! All the responses said that the mon-to be should take a stand for herself.
Giving birth is a very intimate process. The mother nurtures a child for nine whole months, goes through several emotional, hormonal, and physical changes, and the delivery of a child marks the end of that emotional and tough journey.
Where some women want their loved ones with them, some want to go through the process alone. At this point, people need to understand it completely up to the mother who she wants in the delivery room.
Forcing someone to go against their will during these life-changing moments of their life is straight-up cruel.
The uncertainty that comes with delivering a child scares many women, and they usually want their family members, other than their husbands, to see that.
Unfortunately, even in the 21st century, some women are forced to change their decision of not wanting anyone in the labor room.
One such mom-to-be recently took to Quora to ask for advice on what to do in her own marriage with her husband.
“I’m pregnant, and my husband is forcing me to let his parents in the delivery room, but I don’t want that. What should I do?”
Clearly, she does not want her in-laws in the labor room. To be honest, it’s completely her decision, and she should have the liberty to decide. Her husband needs to understand that it is pretty uncomfortable to have your in-laws see the most intimate parts of you.
Apart from this, her question indirectly hints that she has said no, and her husband is not listening.
Of course! All the responses said that the mon-to be should take a stand for herself. One of them said, “Birth is a personal experience, not a spectator sport.” And that hit hard.
Well! In the end, the mom gets the final say. Having unwanted guests in the delivery room could actually create a dangerous situation.
We don’t know what happened in the end, but we sure do hope the lady had the courage to stand for herself. If not, she should question the entire foundation of her marriage.
