A MUM caused shock when she shared that her mother-in-law was so insistent on being there for the birth of her grandchild that the in-law snuck into the delivery room to watch.
The invasive mother-in-law hid behind a bathroom door to get a peek at the birth and even filmed the private moment on her phone.
The mum, whose son is now 10 years old, took to Reddit to share the shocking story.
She said: “[My mother-in-law] had been making comments the whole pregnancy about being in the delivery room.
“I was 16 when I got pregnant and such a people pleaser back then so I never actually said NO at first, just laughed it off like haha yeah ok, we’ll see, etc.
“But towards like 30 weeks she was on me hard about it. I finally (after getting hyped up by my mom and bf) grew a spine and told her I just wasn’t comfortable with anyone other than my mom or bf.
“She was veryyyyy disappointed and made me feel so guilty bc it was her first grannndddbbaaabyyyy *eye roll* but I stuck to it and said no, sorry.”
When the woman was ready to give birth the mother-in-law came to the hospital to support her.
She said: “She obviously came to the hospital to be in the waiting room like most excited grandparents with the rest of our family.
“I don’t remember how many times she came into my room to ‘see how things were going’ but it had to have been 15 times in a 6 hour period.
“Well apparently one of those last times, she just didn’t leave and I had already had my epidural so I wasn’t paying close attention.
“They tell me it’s time to start pushing and my mom and bf get around me to help and coach me through it.
“I’m obviously scared and crying, trying to push etc….. When my moms leans to my ear and says ‘[Your mother-in-law is hiding in the bathroom watching through a crack in the door.’
“I sat up so quickly my epidural tube came out of my back and tried so hard to close my legs that were literally pushing a child out but I forgot my legs didn’t work at the moment.
“I scream at my bf to get her out and he has no idea what I’m talking about because we were having a boy and he thought I meant the baby lol.
“But he looked over and saw her, looked back at me and started crying and apologising.
“He walked over to her and almost ripped the doors off the hinges and this b**** was recording the whole thing through a f***ing crack in the door.
“He took her phone, threw it on the couch in my delivery room and shoved her out the door.
“She tried to come back in for her phone and two security guards escorted her off the premises.”
The woman then explained that she did return the phone to her mother-in-law the following day but only after deleting “the video and all the zoomed-in crotch shots she had taken”.
Fellow Reddit users were shocked by the invasive actions of the woman’s mother-in-law.
One said: “I don’t know you but I am so proud of you for ditching that load of crazy!”
Another agreed: “You were a minor too! How gross that she didn’t get kicked out before then!”
A third said: “Thank god Facebook live wasn’t a thing back then.”
