How Husband Treats Pregnant Wife For 9 Months Goes Viral: ‘All Hours Ready’
A video showing a woman’s husband caring for her while pregnant has gone viral on TikTok, where it has garnered at least 4.3 million views at the time of publication.
The video montage, shared by user Ambervscott, was posted with an on-screen message that read: “I will never forget the way my husband treated me and my baby during the 9 months I was pregnant. “
The clip was shared with a caption that read: “Not pictured: He rubs my back / ties my hair all night [that] I spent over the toilet in my first [trimester] [crying floods of tears emoji].”
The first trimester of pregnancy is “crucial for the normal development of the fetus,” explains the Johns Hopkins Medicine website. During this time, the fetus is most vulnerable to damage from substances such as alcohol, drugs, certain medications, as well as diseases.
Various physiological symptoms also appear in women during the first trimester as their body and that of their baby are changing rapidly during this period.
They may experience “extreme fatigue from the physical and emotional demands of pregnancy,” while elevated hormone levels can lead to “mood swings” and “morning sickness,” causing nausea and sometimes vomiting, notes Johns Hopkins Medicine.
A July 2016 study of 2,641 women in the Boston area published in Peer-Reviewed Women’s Health Journalnoted that nearly half of all infant deaths in the United States are “attributable to perinatal causes [the period between when you become pregnant and up to year after giving birth] Conditions including pregnancy complications, low birth weight and prematurity.”
The study found “higher levels of prenatal anxiety, depression, and smoking among pregnant women who report low partner support,” and its findings “add to increasing evidence that fathers and partners control maternal psychological variables and smoking behavior affect during pregnancy.”
The study concluded, “Partner support may be an important and potentially modifiable target for interventions to improve pregnancy outcomes.”
The latest viral TikTok video shows the user’s husband delivering various plates and packages of food and multiple foot massages, putting socks on his wife and cooking batches of food.
The video also included a note inside a fridge, attached to containers of various foods, which read, “Thanks for all the amazing food baby. Xoxo, I love you and every day more excited to meet Baby A. I wish you a great day. xox.”
Several TikTok users were touched by the latest viral clip and praised the husband for his heartwarming gestures.
