Mom of 7-month-old laughs at pregnant woman suffering from severe allergic reaction after she steals baby’s food

A recent family gathering involving neighbors, friends, and distant relatives took an unexpected and dramatic turn, as explained in a Reddit post.

*This is a work of non-fiction sourced from social media discussion boards and verified experts/specialists.*

At a family gathering, the author explains how she was there with her 7-month-old son and husband. However, the scene changed when an unknown woman, who was 6 months pregnant, came to introduce herself. The author explains further:

“I was sitting by the pool, giving my son some of his teether snacks and his favorite are these banana teether crackers (important later). A woman that I didn’t recognize came up to me and we started talking. She told me she was 6 months pregnant and we were just talking about pregnancy, hormones, babies, and I felt like it was an overall normal conversation. I found out she was the girlfriend of a distant cousin which is why she was invited. Out of the blue, she started to go off on a tangent about processed foods and was saying that the teethers are essentially “poison” for my son.”

The author was taken aback by this outburst and started to argue back with the pregnant woman. The author continues:

“She started to get loud when I disagreed, and she then reached over as if she was going to take the snacks out of my son's hand. I stood up, and let her know I was uncomfortable with the direction the conversation had taken and excused myself and my son to go find someone I knew or my husband.”

The author went inside to chat with some family members, only to be shocked when the pregnant woman stormed in a did something very drastic and very surprising:

“I had just found my husband who was inside talking to his siblings and started telling him about the crazy conversation outside when the woman came up from behind me and snatched my son's teether snack out of his hand. We all stood there in shock for a second, then she goes “You’ll thank me for this! It’s really what’s best for your baby” then shoved the snack INTO HER MOUTH. Baby slobber and everything.”

But that was not the end of the story. The author concludes with:

"She chewed for a few seconds then sort of froze, and asked if it was banana. When I said yes, she started panicking and shouting that she was severely allergic. I couldn’t really help it but I started cracking up. Everyone was rushing around trying to help her, but I was focused on getting my son calmed down from having his snacks stolen by an adult. To me, it was just instant karma, so me and my husband used the chaos to sneak out without saying anything to anyone. She ended up having to go to the ER, but was ultimately ok. However, my reaction was not missed by others and we’ve had a few people reach out to call me a “horrible person for laughing at a pregnant woman who was having a medical emergency”.”

It’s important to remain calm if someone is having a severe allergic reaction and call 9-1-1 for medical assistance immediately, suggests An EpiPen can also help reduce some of the symptoms, notes the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

What do you think?

Was the author very much in the wrong to have laughed at the woman who stole her son’s snack when the woman started having an allergic reaction?

Or was this indeed an instance of instant karma, and though it may not have been the nicest way to react, she didn’t owe the pregnant woman grace after she screamed at the author and stole her infant son’s snack?
