I’m Scared To Give Birth Because of My Mother-In-Law

Jennie’s marriage to Alex began as a dreamy college romance, filled with laughter and shared dreams. However, the birth of their child exposed cracks in their relationship, transforming their once ideal union into a struggle. Initially, Jennie and Alex’s contrasting interests—she, a literature enthusiast, and he, an engineering whiz—brought them closer. Their relationship thrived through debates and shared passions, embodying young love at its best.

Their bond grew stronger as they settled into post-college life, but moving to Alex’s hometown introduced new challenges, particularly his overly involved mother, Mrs. Harlow. Her constant interference strained Jennie’s relationship with Alex, especially when they announced their pregnancy. Mrs. Harlow’s intensified presence left Jennie feeling isolated and frustrated.

Jennie’s concerns were often sidelined by Alex, who prioritized his mother’s needs. The breaking point came when Jennie staged a false labor scare to test Alex’s loyalty, only to be disappointed by his response. This reaffirmed her fears and compounded her feelings of abandonment, tied to the loss of her own mother during childbirth.

Seeking support from her best friend, Mia, Jennie found the courage to confront her challenges and set boundaries with Mrs. Harlow. Determined to rewrite her story, Jennie faced an uncertain future with newfound strength and the support of those who truly cared for her.
