Imagine giving birth to your first child and then being told you're too fragile to do anything but stay in bed. That's the reality for one new mom who's fed up with her husband and mother-in-law (MIL) treating her like she's made of glass. Despite feeling mostly fine, she's been confined to her home and only allowed out for absolute necessities. But when her husband prioritizes his mom's needs over their own, this mama bear decides it's time to take matters into her own hands! 🐻🍼
