“What business do you have getting pregnant if your husband is out of work?”

OBGYN to a mother at her first prenatal visit. Her husband was laid off the day they found out they were pregnant, and the pregnancy ended in miscarriage.

    One it’s not her choice and two my sister was conceived when my dad was out of work he’d found a job while my mother was in labor….. most babies on this planet come into the world as accidents….. no one really plans it.

    There are so many layers to that comment. So what if someone’s husband doesn’t work!? My husband is a stay at home parent to our two children because he has a DISABILITY that makes it impossible for him to work. Does that mean I shouldn’t be expecting my third child because we are a single income household!? There is judgement everywhere… and some of the harshest in the OB office!
