A pregnant woman has claimed that her husband is forcing her to have his parents in the room when her baby arrives.
The woman has turned to fellow internet users in a bid to address the issue, revealing she is trying to resist her husband's wishes and asking for some much-needed advice.
She wrote in a post on Quora: ''I'm pregnant and my husband is forcing me to have his parents in the delivery room, but I don't want that. What should I do?''
The post attracted more than 100 responses, with Sharon Kaufman among those who have offered her support.
She said: ''The delivery room is not a place for a social gathering.
''First off, the delivery room must maintain exceptionally high standards of hygiene to ensure that mother and baby do not acquire life-threatening infections.
''Second, childbirth isn't pretty. There's blood and bodily fluids to be seen in both normal deliveries and C-sections, and the mother may cry out. Many people, including big strong men, cannot watch childbirth in person without fainting or becoming nauseated or emotionally upset.''
