New dad left devastated after his wife unexpectedly kicked him out of the delivery room while she gave birth.
The anonymous man shared on Reddit how he missed the birth of his daughter and it has been weighing on his mind for months.
‘My wife gave birth to our daughter three months ago,’ he posted.
‘I was always looking forward to witness her birth. My wife and I agreed that it would be an exclusive moment between us,’ he said.
He said he didn’t know ‘what came over her’, but just as she was about to deliver, she told him she didn’t want him there.
‘I was really surprised and asked her why.
‘She told me that she didn’t want me to see her like that and when I told her it’d be alright, she asked the nurse to kick me out.’
The man said she said she just wanted her mother there, and as a result ‘I just ended up missing the most important event in my life.
‘I just couldn’t do anything. I just cried and sucked it up,’ he said.
While he said he never ‘expressed’ his ‘displeasure’, the man said he is still ‘devastated’ about it and he is planning to tell her.
He asked for advice as to whether he should ask her, or if he should keep it to himself. Admitting it is really taking a toll on their relationship and they are considering time apart.
Tough situation! I can certainly understand why she may have changed her mind during labour. It is all so very unexpected and terrifying at the time. She probably just really wanted to save him the stress.
What would you do in this situation?
