She Escaped from Her Abusive Mother, but When She Fell Pregnant and Wanted to Reconcile, Her Mother Kept Trying to Manipulate Her

A young mother-to-be recently went online to ask for advice about how to deal with her manipulative mother, who was still trying to control her life. Here’s her story.

“I’m currently 34 weeks pregnant,” the 21-year-old began. “I’ve been with my boyfriend, who is 23, for six years.”

“My mother blames my boyfriend for me and her not being close, but in reality, she is the reason: years of using me, taking my money, and physically, verbally, and emotionally manipulating me.”

The woman explained that her mother had never liked her boyfriend, believing that he’d “taken” her from her.

Worse than that, her mother forbade her from seeing her boyfriend and would only let her leave the house to go to work.

When the woman was 20, she’d had enough. She packed her bags in the middle of the night and left.

Pregnancy changed things

The woman went no-contact with her mom for a couple of months, but when she fell pregnant, she felt obligated to reach out. After all, this would be her mother’s first grandchild.

She thought her mother would be happy, but instead she said she wasn’t happy for her daughter and didn’t like that she had “that thing” growing in her womb.

Despite this, the woman said her mother eventually came around to the idea, sort of. She was happy that she was going to become a grandmother, but she didn’t like who the father was.

The woman said that her boyfriend was banned from entering her parents’ house, even though he’s never done anything to upset them. The pair hadn’t spoken to each other for three years.

They didn’t show up

When the woman held her baby shower, her parents were the only people who didn’t show up. It was the final straw for the woman.

She told her mom

She told her mom that when her baby was born, she only wanted her boyfriend in the delivery room with her. This made her mom furious. She accused her daughter of “stealing” a precious moment from her.

The woman replied that there would be a chance for her mother to visit the hospital to meet her grandchild, but her mom still wasn’t happy. She demanded that, as soon as the woman was discharged, she bring the baby to her house without her boyfriend.

The woman wanted to tell her mother that if she didn’t visit her in the hospital, then she wouldn’t be allowed into her grandchild’s life at all. She asked the internet if this was too harsh.

The internet responded

The internet backed the woman, but not without some unfiltered advice. “I don’t know what it is you want from your mother,” said one. “But you’re never going to get it.”

“Your mom doesn’t have any right to know your child,” said another. “She doesn’t have a right to be in your life. And, painful as it is, she is incapable of loving you the way you deserve. It’s not your fault; it’s hers.”
