An expectant mother in Minnesota went from having labour pains at work to holding her baby whilst driving to the hospital.

The mother picked up the baby’s father on the way to the hospital and although being in discomfort continued to drive the journey as the baby’s father has a history of seizures and they thought it was safer for her to drive.

Ms McBride was driving when the baby simply slid out. The father had to then take the wheel as she cradled the baby in her arms. The baby boy named Joseph was a healthy baby weighing 8 pounds.

However, the hospital were shocked to discover that the mum was driving whilst in labour, which of course is not recommended and deemed extremely dangerous. If there is nobody that can take you to the hospital, the safest thing to do is call the ambulance service.
