Woman gives birth in car while husband drives her to hospital

May 6, 2016

Giving birth in a car is not the ideal scenario for a mom-to-be, but this 22-yr-old Houston native, Lesia Pettijohn, recently gave birth to her 10-pound (yes, 10) baby boy in the front seat of a car…all while her driving husband documents it on his GoPro! Yikes! Luckily, the parents of three were able to stay calm, cool and collected enough to deliver the baby safely, while somehow still managing to stay the course to the hospital. Did we mention she pulls the baby out herself?!

Both mom and baby are healthy and happy and the whole family is amazed at the worldwide attention the unusual birth is attracting. ‘He’s going to be famous before he even knows his own name. It’s amazing. I can’t believe so many people want to see something like that,’ said proud daddy John.

Whether in a hospital, at home or in a car (hopefully not!), all moms are superheroes when it comes to childbirth. So lovingly reflect on your own amazing story while you take a peek into this labor of love.
