A woman who had to spend 21 hours giving birth to her baby triggered a fierce debate when she revealed her boyfriend brought his games console to hospital.
TikTok user Amber @amberscxtt explains in a video the birth was induced and took a long time, meaning her partner wanted something to do to whittle away the hours.
She shows a clip of her partner wearing a headset and sitting with his back to her while concentrating on a first-person shooter game.
Meanwhile, she is lying on a bed in a hospital gown waiting for active labour to begin.
"My boyfriend brought his entire gaming system to the hospital during my 21-hour long induction," she says in the on-screen text.
The video was watched more than 1million times since it was uploaded on Friday (March 4) and viewers were divided.
While some people believed playing games was fine, others thought he should have been pampering his partner non-stop.
One user sarcastically commented: "Wow what a great father and dependable husband he will be."
A second viewer said: "Lol nah this is my wife’s day for real I don’t care how nervous I am. She is 10x more nervous so I need to be there with her 24/7 unless she says otherwise."
Someone else argued: "So what's he supposed to do for 21 hours straight? Y'all would get mad if he slept, if he did anything but act like a servant to y'all."
"I told my husband to bring his Switch while we’re waiting," said another. "No sense in being a ball of nerves instead by sitting and waiting."
Replying to the more harsh comments, Amber said: "It’s okay everyone. I wasn’t in any type of pain till 19 hours later when it was almost time for me to push.
"And for those 19 hours, I watched movies and browsed TikTok."
