There are so many decisions to make when you have a baby. There’s more to having a baby than picking a name and color scheme. Do you ever wonder if there were any complications with your pregnancy? Are you going to ask your husband to choose your life over the baby? She asked Reddit what they thought about her asking her partner to save her over the baby, and shared her friends’ negative reactions
We don’t know if the story is true since it’s not verifiable. No matter what, it’s still a topic we think is important! In this situation, how would you act? There’s no easy way out.
The mother was shamed for asking her husband to save her life rather than the baby’s
The following is her Reddit post:
The comments on the post were generally supportive of the mother. “I strongly support this,” one Reddit user wrote. Women are not just incubators, but people in and of themselves. Any person or institution that believes the [mother’s] life to be secondary is a misogynist.” Others added that it is inarguably her body, her choice, and no one else’s concern.
Parents are certainly placed in a difficult position if they must choose who will survive, however, the notion that moms’ lives are not even worth considering is appalling. The Reddit user and her husband seem to have agreed about what they will do in the event of an emergency. At the end of the day, no one else has any say.
But more importantly, she shouldn’t be made to feel morbid or “negative” for talking to her spouse about things that matter.
“It’s so awful to think about, but your spouse should know what your wishes are during these types of situations. It’s just like end-of-life care, drastic measures to save your life, etc. where your next of kin should know what you want if you can’t. yourself,” one person wrote.
“Those conversations are essential,” the person said, “especially when you’re facing a difficult pregnancy/birth.”
