A bloke has been slammed online after he apparently baited her into yelling at him in front of his family by mocking her for her traumatic birth.

The man’s wife, 25, had given birth just weeks prior in what she called the most painful experience of her life, reports the Mirror.

Trauma during birth can cause long term psychological and psychical issues including PTSD.

Posting on Reddit, the new mum said: "When I went into labour I had the most difficult time of my life, I was in pain for hours and I did something so embarrassing in the delivery room.

“I pooped myself which was unexpected and it was so embarrassing.

“My medical team were very professional about it, but my husband couldn't help himself and started laughing about it later.”

She continued: “He even told my family about it but they didn't react and just didn't find it funny.

“Neither did I, in fact, I found it embarrassing and I already told him to stop bringing it up, especially when he started joking about getting me diapers for my 'oopsies!' It got really tiring and chipped away from my self-esteem and confidence."

Having a bowel movement during labour is extremely common and something health professionals will have seen hundreds of times before.

The woman added that she and her husband went to her in-laws for New Years Eve, but when she went to the loo her husband said: "Oh yeah, you should go quickly because we don't want any accidents just like the one we had at the hospital, you know what I mean.”

Apparently, he winked at her and her in-laws began to laugh with her brother-in-law even saying “good one”.

She said: “I was astonished and so angry and ashamed, I literally just lost it on him and yelled at the top of my lungs calling him a cruel insensitive jerk to be using the difficult experience of birthing his child as a joking matter and humiliating me in front of everybody.

"He was shocked, staring back at me and not saying a word. All went silent and I just stormed off to the bathroom until we left and that was when he snapped saying I messed up by talking to him like that in front of his family during dinner."

The wife continued: "I said I couldn't hold my tongue for that long and after he kept joking about an embarrassing thing when I told him to stop.

“He said he was just joking and I went overboard with my reaction, saying I should've sucked it up and waited until we got home so we could address this privately and I could even yell at him as long as I wanted."

She asked Reddit if she was wrong to shout at him.

One commenter said: “What a cruel and immature joke to make, ask him to push a watermelon out his d*** and see if he can do it without any 'embarrassing accidents.' If you had addressed this in private he would’ve said the same thing: you’re emotional and overreacting.

“He did it in front of his parents and family to corner you.”

While another added: "This behaviour needs to get nipped ASAP. Women release bowels during labour ALL the time, you have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of."
