New mom breaks promise to husband about meeting newborn first 😭

When a new mom is left alone with a newborn baby, it can be a daunting task. In this case, a woman had to call for help from her own mother. But, after breaking a promise to her husband and letting her mother see the baby before he did, the husband was understandably upset. The woman's husband felt disrespected and that she had broken his trust. He has been cold towards her and is expecting an apology. What do you think? Should the mom apologize or was it a justified decision to call her own mother for help with the new baby?
