A woman recently kicked her husband out of the delivery room after he called her a “hormonal mess” during labor.
In a Reddit post, the 32-year-old new mom revealed that her husband was extremely supportive at first as she went into painful contractions in the hospital. Moments later, however, a confrontation ensued after the midwife asked the couple some routine questions about their pregnancy journey.
The first time mom said the midwife innocently asked if the couple was excited about the end of the pregnancy. “I said yes because it was hard for me. My husband snorted and said ‘for me too, she was so hard,'” the woman wrote in the social media post.

After the man made the snide remark, the midwife tried to change the conversation, but the woman pushed through and asked her partner what he meant. “He said he’s glad it’s over and that he’ll get his wife back and ‘the hormonal mess is over,'” she said.
The woman wrote that she was so “wounded” and asked him to leave the room, which he initially refused. “I yelled at him to get out and he was devastated, called me an asshole for letting him miss the birth of his child and stormed off.” The woman also said that her husband had not. was back to see his child, but was due to stop by the delivery room later that day.
Since the post was shared, the message from the 32-year-old has received thousands of comments. Many Internet users praised the woman for making fun of her husband for his scathing comments. One user wrote: “Yes. So many of these comments are disturbing. Even if he was only joking, she wasn’t in the right place to think it was funny.”

Another wrote: “The right. It’s not about the man, the only person anyone should be concerned about is the person who GIVES BIRTH. IT IS NOT A CIRCUS ACT.’ “Many people treat labor (ie, pain in women and risk of death or disability in women) as a type of consumer experience that they are entitled to, as if it exists for pleasure,” wrote the third.
The Reddit post received more than 13,000 upvotes and more than 3,900 likes.
