Husband Who Showed Wife Motivational Messages During Labour Gets Dragged on Social Media

Husband Who Showed Wife Motivational Messages During Labour Gets Dragged on Social Media

A man who created a special motivational message book to present to his wife during her labour has been absolutely dragged on social media after his video went viral on Twitter.

The man from Atlanta, Georgia has been dubbed “husband of the year” by ABC News (US) after footage of him flipping through a booklet of anecdotes, memories and reassuring messages for his wife to read during her two-day-long labour went viral.

“You are my best friend, soul mate and in just a few pushes… the most amazing mother our daughter could ever ask for,” the new father, identified as Kendall Caver, says in his nifty book.

While a set of motivational flashcards reminding your labouring wife to breathe might have seemed like a good idea at the time, many are saying that it most certainly was not.

An overwhelming majority of commenters have resoundingly quashed the well-meaning husband’s intentions as attention-seeking selfishness, presuming that his video was made purely for internet points and not what any labouring woman wants to have to deal with at all.

Caver has since defended his actions, revealing his wife Jasmine had been anxious in the lead up to the birth due to a previous miscarriage.

“I wanted to do something that could help her take her mind off all that was happening,” he said, adding that Jasmine “laughed, smiled and cried” during his tribute to their time together.

He announced on Facebook their daughter, Sofia, was born on September 3.

All’s well as long as she appreciated his viral gesture, I guess.
