(Picture: Getty)After childbirth, new mums most likely want some alone time with the newborn and their partner if they have one.
Sadly for one mum, that wasn’t an option, despite having a boyfriend with whom she shared another child.
The 35-year-old explained how her partner of three years left her alone in hospital a mere 30 minutes after having an unexpected caesarean.
The mum-of-two said she was betrayed by him especially after stipulating that he stay with mum and baby for a day or two to help them adjust.
To make things worse, not only did he leave them to go to work and tend to their livestock, as a farmer, he decided to host some friends at home.
A day after his second child was born, he decided to have brunch with his friends, leaving his partner alone once again.
Meanwhile the dad was having brunch with his friends (Picture: Getty)‘When I got pregnant a second time, I was first happy but increasingly scared,’ the mum wrote on a now-deleted Reddit post.
‘I made my boyfriend promise me every day during the pregnancy to be there for me and not skip out on us. I told him he needs to stay with us through the first day or two after birth.’
She explained that they were expecting some friends to come over and stay but she unexpectedly went into labour before they arrived.
So, the dad had to entertain them and also feed the livestock, which the mum said she didn’t mind.
But she insisted that he come back when he finished with his duties. Instead, he bought the entire group with him and they all admired the baby ‘for ten minutes’ before heading out together.
‘No chance talking to him in private, also I was still in pain,’ the mum went on.
‘So my boyfriend told me: “I have to go but just say the word and I will come back (we live five minutes away from the hospital).
‘Late at night [the pain] got worse, so I wrote a message: “Please come I feel horrible and need you.”
‘He was already asleep and did not hear it. I waited an hour or so and then I called. He was asleep. A little later the hospital called. He was still asleep.
‘The next morning he read my message, saw that I had called, saw the hospital had called and decided it was not an emergency because ‘then they would have called again’ – and went to work.
‘He did not call or message me. Afterwards, he had a nice brunch with friends. He arrived when all was well again and after the guests had left.’
She revealed that since having their daughter, she has opened up about the way he treats her, something the couple argue about ‘every two months’.
The poster said her partner acknowledged that it would’ve been better if he’d been there but he couldn’t have known and that she should’ve called more or worded her text better.
‘So I have a grudge for all of this and I cannot get over it,’ said the mum. ‘I explained several times that I need an honest apology. The “but”- explanations don’t seem/feel right.’
Redditors said the argument keeps resurfacing as it hasn’t been solved and for that to happen, the dad needs to own up to his mistakes.
