BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND - MARCH 16: Nurses in the accident and emergency dept of Selly Oak Hospital work during a busy shift on March 16, 2010 in Birmingham, England. As the UK gears up for one of the most hotly contested general elections in recent history it is expected that that the economy, immigration, industry, the NHS and education are likely to form the basis of many of the debates.

Lots of hospitals have changed their delivery room policies over coronavirus concerns and now only allow one support person to be there for the mom in labor. And that was just fine with one woman, who didn’t want her mother-in-law in the room when she gave birth to her first child. But the MIL was determined to see the baby born and went to extremes to be there.

In a post on Reddit’s JUSTNOMIL section, the new mom explains that her husband’s mother “tried to crash the delivery room by wearing a mask and scrubs and pretending to be another nurse.” But hospital employees were paying attention and the MIL was caught before she got into the room. Now, this is where my mom would have stopped.

Security stopped her multiple times, cops were called, and she was actually arrested. The parents in the delivery room had no idea this had even happened until a hospital administrator called later to “discuss the breach of security.”

Of course, I say my mom would do this in jest. We all know the importance of safety especially when it comes to our little ones. Grandmas included.
