The photographer recently puBlished a series of photos that captured a mother who ɢᴀᴠᴇ ʙɪʀᴛʜ in a car. She wrote on Instagram aBout this particular incident: “I always say that although most first births turn into marathons, you really never know. And then I tell them this story. A mother who was about to ɢɪᴠᴇ ʙɪʀᴛʜ to her first child was in ʟᴀʙᴏʀ and called me to tell me that the ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs had already started.
She was planning to ɢɪᴠᴇ ʙɪʀᴛʜ in the ᴍᴀᴛᴇʀɴɪᴛʏ ward, so she knew everything she needed to do at that moment. Rest, eat something, and drink water. Within an hour, however, her husband called me to tell me that things were moving faster. I heard a ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴ over the phone and told her it might be time to go to the ᴍᴀᴛᴇʀɴɪᴛʏ ward. Dad called me almost five minutes later to tell me my ᴡᴀᴛᴇʀ ʜᴀᴅ ʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ. I heard one more ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴ and told them we absolutely had to ʜᴇᴀᴅ to the ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀʟ center.
I grabbed my bags and got into the car. As I was driving on the westbound highway, I saw my dad calling me again. “We see the ʜᴇᴀᴅ!” I told them to pull over, and somehow I happened to be driving right behind them. When I saw their car, I also pulled over and got out of the car. Dad was a ɴᴇᴜʀᴏsᴜʀɢᴇᴏɴ, so I knew he would be calm under pressure. And it was! An ᴀᴍʙᴜʟᴀɴᴄᴇ happened to be passing by, and as soon as they saw what was happening, they came to help. They tried to get her out of the car to lay her on the stretcher, but I said, “No way!” (She was already ɢɪᴠɪɴɢ ʙɪʀᴛʜ.)
I kind of blocked the staff so mom and dad could ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀ their child with as little fuss as possible. And they succeeded admirably. We were close to the ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀʟ center, so they decided to take mom and the baby there. I also got into the car to offer some security. We made it there, and mom took her baby in her arms. What is the moral of the story? A birth always surprises you. Not all first births are time-consuming. If the baby is coming quickly, you take ʜᴇᴀᴠʏ ʙʀᴇᴀᴛʜs, and you do this and you do it well.”
