Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell slammed for wanting daughter Nova, 6, to be in delivery room to watch her give birth
TEEN Mom OG fans slammed show star Catelynn Lowell for wanting her daughter Nova, six, to be in the delivery room to watch her give birth to baby, Rya.
A clip from the new episode saw Catelynn speak with Maci Bookout about the experience, as she shared her eldest son, Bentley, was in the delivery room when she had her youngest, Maverick.
In the clip, Catelynn asked Maci if she thought the experience of being in the "traumatized" Bentley.
Maci shared she knew Bentley was "nervous" at the time, but Catelynn noted because Nova is so "excited" to meet her new sister, she wants to talk with her obstetrician about having her there to watch her birth.
She also explained Bentley's "pediatrician and my OB made it very clear they wanted someone in there just for Bentley so if he got overwhelmed or if something went wrong, there would be someone there to take him out of the room."
Catelyn shared Nova is asking more about where babies come from, and she thinks it would be a "good" and "cool experience" for her to be in the delivery room, provided she's comfortable, especially since this baby would be her and Tyler's last.
She told Maci: “I’m done after this one. My body has carried four kids — I am done.”
Fans commented: "Sounds traumatizing"
Another added: "With covid, they wouldn’t allow it anyway so It seems like they had the conversation just to have something to film."
A third weighed in: "I like that she’s considering it, but I personally think 6 is still too young. Not because she’s not smart enough to understand, but hearing your mom scream like that and seeing blood can be really stressful and scary as an adult let alone 6 years old.
"She’d be happier in the waiting room with grandma and to come in after the baby is born and mom is ok."
Tyler recently shared an adorable photo holding his six-year-old daughter Novalee as the two dressed in formal attire for an MTV producer's wedding.

The TV personality was dressed in an all-black suit and Novalee matched in a black and white dress, mary jane shoes, and a big black bow.
Tyler captioned his post: "Stop growing up so fast Novalee!"
Tuesday’s episode of Teen Mom OG, also saw Catelynn, 29, admit how discussing the topic of sex with her younger brother made her think about how her own daughters are old enough to understand it.
But one viewer wrote on Twitter: “It’s kind of weird how many times Catelynn has talked about her little brother’s sex life.”
During the previous episode, Catelynn received a rare visit from her mother and younger brother.
She shared her fears he may follow in her footsteps and have a teen pregnancy.
A SISTER'S FEARS
Viewers slammed Catelynn for her interest in Nick's sex life, as one person tweeted: "Catelynn leave your brother alone, this is hella awkward."
Others slammed the Teen Mom star for discussing her brother's private business on the show, with one fan complaining: "Can Catelynn and her mom please stop discussing her brother’s private life. It feels intrusive."
Last week's episode concluded with Nick telling Catelynn he isn't sexually active and insisted he won't have a baby as a teenager.
However, Catelynn became concerned when Nick said he would rather have a baby at 20-years-old instead of waiting until he's out of college.
In addition to Carly and Novalee, Catelynn and Tyler share daughter Vaeda, two, and they welcomed their newborn daughter Rya Rose on August 28.
Catelynn also recently revealed her emotional reunion with her first daughter, Carly, will be featured this season on Teen Mom.
She and Tyler placed their daughter for adoption during the first season of 16 & Pregnant.
The reunion with 12-year-old Carly had been delayed by two years due to COVID.
Speaking to E! News, Catelynn shared: "We did end up having a visit with Carly and MTV did follow that. They didn't film Carly herself or anything like that but they always film us.
"People will be able to witness what our reaction was from the first day to the last day, from leaving and even just like the start of the visit and things like that, which I think is definitely important."
