A mom has been slammed on TikTok for using a laser to remove a large birthmark from her baby’s face.

Brooke called out the troll who branded her a child abuser, saying that the treatment was the best option for her son.

Over the past few months, the mom has been sharing her journey with her son. The baby was born with a large port-wine stain birthmark on his face.




After consulting with medical professionals, Brooke decided to have the birthmark treated with a laser so it wouldn’t affect her son later in life.

The mom was met with backlash after sharing this with her followers. Her decision to put her baby through laser treatment was criticized by many of her followers.

“Oh my Jesus Christ, how can you do that to him?” wrote one, while another commented: “I think this is just wrong, they should wait until he is 18 and can decide for himself if he wants it removed or not.”

“This is literally torture. You should have done more research. There are other ways of helping it fade that are WAY safer and don’t hurt,” a third added.

Since being criticized so much, Brooke has made it her mission to educate her followers. She explains in several videos that laser treatment is the only option for her son.

“The reason we started so early with the laser is due to the fact it is a port-wine stain birthmark. Portwine stain birthmarks do not fade, they do not disappear. They darken over time, they can progress and become lumpy and cause health issues,” she said in one TikTok that has racked up over 308,000 views.

“The younger they are the better it is to start the laser because it is fresh on their skin and it is less stubborn. Over time it will become more stubborn and they will need more sessions in the future,” Brooke continued.

She said that she was doing it for her son’s health.

“I think he is the most beautiful boy in the whole entire world. I don’t give a f*** if he has a birthmark on his face or not,” she said, adding: “It p***** me off that people think this is purely for cosmetic purposes when it isn’t.”
