woman who is 31 weeks pregnant with twins has refused to allow her husband's brother, a medical student, to be present in the delivery room. The brother-in-law expressed an interest in being there to witness the birth. Still, the woman is uncomfortable with the idea and feels that her pleasant delivery experience should be the priority. The husband got defensive and said he should be allowed to have a support person too, which caused a huge argument. Is she the a**hole for refusing to allow her brother-in-law to be present for educational purposes?

Expecting mom refuses husband's brother in delivery room 🤕

Giving birth is a beautiful experience but can also be quite stressful. This is why ensuring the mother is as comfortable as possible is essential. In this post_text, a mom-to-be is unwilling to have her brother-in-law, a medical student, in the delivery room. Her husband is also insisting that his brother should be present. The mom has had a difficult pregnancy and wants a pleasant birth experience. She worries that too many people in the room might make her uncomfortable. The husband, on the other hand, wants his brother there for the educational experience. The situation has caused a lot of conflicts, including involving other family members. Ultimately, a decision is made, but is it the right one? Let's see what people say in the comments and reactions section.
