A pregnant woman is facing a dilemma as her husband wants their child to be born in his home country, Mexico, while she wants to be in control of her labor and delivery. Although her husband's family could be present during the birth, she is uncomfortable with the idea of delivering in a hospital she has never been to with a doctor who does not speak English. She also wants to be as comfortable as possible during labor and delivery, and she feels like she should have a say in where their child will be born. Her husband, however, is upset and thinks she is being selfish for not considering his family's feelings. Do you think she is the a**hole for refusing to have her baby in Mexico?

Pregnant woman refuses to give birth in husband's home country 😱
A pregnant woman is faced with a dilemma when her husband insists on going to Mexico for the birth of their child, to make it easier for his family to be present. The woman, however, is concerned about her comfort, medical care and about language barrier. She also prefers to be in control of her labor and delivery. The couple had met in the US when the husband was on a visa, and now the woman is a citizen while he is from Mexico. The woman's family could travel to Mexico easily, but the husband's family would have trouble getting visas to the US. The husband had cited cost, dual citizenship and fairness for his family as reasons for going to Mexico. However, the woman is worried about the medical care, the language barrier, and the lack of control over her birth experience. Is she being selfish or inconsiderate, or is she entitled to choose where she wants to give birth? Let's take a look at the comments and reactions to this post.
