The Baby Name Battle: A Family Torn Apart 🥊👶

The joy of welcoming a new baby was overshadowed by a family feud that erupted over the baby's name. The couple's decision to name their daughter after the mother's late grandmother sparked a war with the grandmother-in-law, leading to some shocking behavior and harsh words. The drama escalated to the point where the grandmother was banned from the delivery room and is now not allowed to see her granddaughter. Despite the backlash from the family, the couple is standing their ground, but not without some self-doubt. Amidst the drama, the mother continues to lean on her supportive stepfamily and friends, while dealing with postpartum anxiety and depression. The story concludes with a firm decision to go no contact with the husband's family due to ongoing harassment. Now, let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...😮💭
