A 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?
