A woмan giʋes 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 in the car, and the husƄand records the мoмent on an eмotional video.
A woman went into labor on her way to the maternity hospital in the US. Father recorded the arrival of the four-kilogram baby, Josiah Benjamin.
It could be fiction. But the adventure lived by the couple from Texas, USA, Lesia, and John Pettijohn, is incredibly real. The two had been on the road for approximately 45 minutes towards the maternity hospital in Pasadena, but the baby did not want to wait and was born inside the car.
The couple had no cell phone to call for help, and Lesia told John to keep driving while she went into labor: “I was probably freaking out a lot more than I should have been. But I really didn’t want to have him in the car. I was scared. I didn’t know if he was breathing properly or if he needed anything else,” she says. Lesia asked John to film her son’sbirth. He captured the moment with a GoPro while driving.
In a few minutes, she had her son in her hands. He was christened Josiah Benjamin. “The baby is coming,” cried Lesia as she saw the baby’s head and pulled her body out. “He’s crying and breathing, honey, he’s fine,” replied her husband John, to reassure the woman, as he recorded the scene from the driver’s seat.
Jon instructed Lesia to turn the baby face down and pat her back – a standard postpartum procedure. “Oh my God, we just had a baby in the car,” the emotional mother said in the video. “It’s a boy,” she added, holding him between her legs.
The already famous baby, Josiah, was born healthy, weighing approximately 4.5 kg. The couple’s third child came into this world acting as a true protagonist in the film that you watch below:
