Father Left To Choose Between Saving His Wife Or His Unborn Daughter Has The Internet Torn

Not all pregnancies and deliveries can be successful, unfortunately. When this happens, many women risk their lives giving birth and are left with a harrowing decision of what to do next. But, there are also times in which the father and/or husband has to make the decision, and it’s one of the hardest to ever make.

Frederick Connie and Keyvonne Connie were expecting their daughter soon, but on November 30th, Keyvonne began bleeding at their home and they rushed to the hospital. According to KDVR, Frederick was told by doctors he had to make a very difficult choice.

“It was either give her the surgery first and maybe save her life, but you’re going to lose your daughter. Or your daughter can be saved but there’s a chance you might lose your wife,”


Frederick made the hard choice of having doctors perform an emergency c-section to save their baby before performing a surgery to save his wife. After the baby was healthy and okay, doctors tried to perform the surgery on Keyvonne, but, it was too late. However, Frederick said he thinks he made the right choice and knew his wife would agree.

I’m glad I made that decision because in the end if Keyvonne probably could have survived she would have hated me for the rest of my life because I knew how she felt about kids.

Many people were devastated to hear that Keyvonne did not make it. Additionally, many on Facebook shared their thoughts and opinions on what they would do if placed in that situation.
