Giving birth is meant to be one of the most magical moments of your life – but, for this mum, the moment was overshadowed by her husband’s infedelity.
A midwife who was on shift at the time, was left stunned when the mum discovered that her husband’s secret partner was also at the same hospital giving birth.
The health care worker, from the US, was sitting near the couple at the time that the mum confronted her husband, and captured her reaction on camera.
The video, which was later shared on Reddit was captioned: “When the laboring mom finds out her man’s side chick is also here in labor.”
In the short clip, you see the midwife’s face slowly but surely appear more and more stunned as the conversation goes on.
Whilst it’s not exactly clear what the couple are saying to each other, the midwife’s face says it all.
All you can make out is a lot of frantic shouting and swearing.
The post, which was uploaded only two days ago, has received over 82,000 reactions, and 4,100 comments from Reddit users.
Understandably, the overall consensus was that users felt sorry for the mum in labour.
One person said: “I wouldn’t even know what to do as a nurse in this scenario”, with which a nurse replied saying: “As a nurse, I can confirm this. If we can’t deescalate the situation verbally, then all we can do is call security and watch.”
Another added: “Oof.. has to be the worst time to find out. Poor woman is already stressed enough.”
A third agreed: “I feel so bad for her. You find out your SO[Significant other] is a complete scum bag while in the process of birthing your child with him.”
And: “All I understand is ‘you’re a f***ing loser’ and honestly girl I agree” said a fourth.
