Kendall Caver is a man that has gone viral on the internet after he was encouraging his wife through labor with a booklet containing motivational messages.
Caver was with his wife Jasmine as she went through two days of labor at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month. He can be seen in the video standing alongside her bed and flipping through the pages of the booklet that featured reassuring anecdotes and words of their time together.
The video of the husband gained huge popularity on the internet, and many news outlets shared it.
However, even though Kendall was praised by thousands of people for his creativity and thoughtfulness, and he was even deemed the “husband of the year”, some people criticized him for what he did.
For example, one Twitter user wrote that if her husband did this while she was in labor, she would have punched him in the face.
Another one added that the woman in the video is clearly better than her, because she “would have been driven to the foulest of language by the first sign of a motivational message”.
Expectedly, even Piers Morgan had an opinion about it:
Even though the online world had a different opinion on the booklet, the most important thing is that Jasmine appreciated what he did, and that’s the only thing that matters.
Kendall explained that he had his reasons for the motivational booklet, and he added that Jasmine was feeling anxious in the weeks leading up to her due date, having previously had a miscarriage.
He said that he wanted to do something that could help her take her mind off all that was happening and to help her focus on her breathing.
