  • I gave birth via c/s due to a lil problem I had during pregnancy and since then my husband has shown me much love bcos he was in the theatre with me and witnessed all the procedure. We had a problem sometime ago and I sent him our son,s picture with the caption “daddy pls forgive mummy”. His response gave me goose bumps……….he replied * my dearest boy,ave forgiven mummy just bcos of the pains she went through in bringing u into my arms and I will forever cherish her for that”. So my dear poster tell ur friend to concentrate on the baby and her wound for now. Her husband is just a torn in the flesh
