One woman is reaching out to the world for support after her circle of “friends” claimed she didn’t “really” give birth to her son because she had a c-section.
Yes, really. The woman went on to share how she just wanted to have a nice evening with friends but the conversation steered straight into why she shouldn’t have a birth certificate for her son.
“So I had an emergency c section six months ago,” she went on to share.
No big deal, right? Wrong. So, so wrong.
“My partner and I decided to have a small get-together with friends. One of his friends whom I can’t stand and genuinely believe is a sociopath asked me if my son got a birth certificate. I was pretty confused and replied with a yeah.”
The friend in question then told her how she should not have even received a birth certificate from her son.
His reasoning? She claims he said it was “because I did not give birth, my son was ‘extracted from me like a tumor.”
Uhm — gross on so many levels.
“His wife and a couple of people snickered with him. I did what I always do which is ignore him because I don’t deal well in those situations.”
But the mom went on to say how she did, in fact, know that she gave birth and it “counted” despite what insensitivities they attempted to throw at her.
Do you think there is merit to what the friend said? Comment with your thoughts below!
