Girlfriend who just delivered a baby or sick mom? Netizens slam man for making his choice
Making a choice between your partner and your mother can be tough, especially when a child is involved. This was exactly what happened to a man who left his girlfriend after she delivered a baby to be with his mother. The user took to Reddit to explain his predicament on Reddit's 'AITA' forum. The post already garnered 106 comments within an hour.
The post, titled 'AITA for leaving my gf at the hospital after she delivered our child?' starts with, "This happened around two months ago, and my girlfriend is still upset about it, so some buddies suggested I come to Reddit."

The man continued, "My girlfriend (20f) gave birth a month and a half ago via emergency cesarean to our baby boy, born at 23w due to PPROM. She developed chorioamnionitis Thursday morning, and by Thursday night, they were rushing her back for a c-section that I wasn't there at the start of. Our son passed away the next morning, Friday."
'I called her three times'
The user then explained why he had to leave his girlfriend. He wrote, "I had to leave her Saturday to go be with my mom who was in the hospital sickly as well. She gets sick often. I asked "Sam" if she was okay to be by herself while I went to be with my mom, and she said, "i mean, I can't really say no to that without sounding like a b*tch," so I went." In the end the user added, "I called her three times while she was in the hospital and texted when I could. This happened in February, and she's still upset "I abandoned" her and my son for my mother. AITA?"
'She really needed you to be there'
The man was brutally slammed for what he did. A user wrote, "YTA. Your newborn passed away and you had to visit your "sickly," mother??? I'd dump you."
Another added, "YTA, you explained that your mom gets sick often, which means she was sick but surviving. Sounds like you just weren't there at all for your girlfriend. She really needed you to be there at that time, and you dropped the ball big time." Another user wrote, "YTA, you and your girlfriend just lost a child and you left to go visit your mom while leaving your girlfriend alone with her thoughts. I 100% guarantee you she was also blaming herself for the death of the baby even though it was something she had no control over. Your mom could also be TA as well depending on the circumstances. If my son and his girlfriend just lost their child I wouldn't allow my son to abandon her to come visit me unless I was literally dying. Seriously. You should have been there for her. I don't know if I could ever forgive that personally."
