    I'd give the seat up. It wouldn't do me harm standing up anyways. I guess it depends on how the mother asks though.

    To be honest I do this all the time. Even ones that are pregnant. I sit down in solidarity with you OP.

    I tried to read this but my eyes welled up and I gave up halfway through because I could no longer make out the text… probably because I was yawning.

    You are entitled to refuse.

    No particular reason why new mothers deserve special treatment.

    Obviously giving your seat up for a pregnant woman or elderly person would be the polite thing to do.

    Sarcasm by any chance? How can you not give a seat up to a person that is pregnant, especially if you're perfectly capable of standing?

    its better if they stand

    How can I not? Quite easily I tell you that. All of the pregnant women I've seen on the train have been perfectly capable of standing. I would only give up my seat for somebody who is very visibly old.

    What especially annoys me about pregnant women on the tube is that they wear the 'baby on board' badges which are quite passive aggressive. And they must be resisted.

    i agree with you here on being a new mother with a baby. so what? you can stand properly can't you? what special rights are you entitled to that i'm not?

    i would do this however since i believe they might have problems standing and moving about so sitting down will only benefit them by giving them a more enjoyable and comfortable ride compared to if they had to stand up all the time
