A woman gave birth to her baby in an unexpected way late last year. At 35 weeks pregnant, the new mom’s water broke, causing her to crash her car into a house in Sydney. She was taken to the hospital quickly after the accident where she gave birth.
Her car crashed into the home, prompting neighbors to call paramedics. Fortunately, no one was in the home at the time of the crash.
The 29-year-old mom, who has not been identified, survived the crash with no major injuries. Both she and her baby, who was delivered safely at the Liverpool Hospital, are fine.
Another passenger, who has also not been identified, was in the car at the time of the crash. That person was also thankfully uninjured.
“I came outside to the window, turned on the lights and I saw bright lights and lots of commotion,” one of the neighbors told 9News about the accident,
Both the mother and baby are doing well, according to reports.
According to MSN, the house was empty at the time of the crash, so there were no injuries.
Stories like this are not as uncommon as you might think. Last year, a Philadelphia woman gave birth at the scene of a car crash she was involved in.
She and her partner, who was driving, were rear-ended by a suspected drunk driver. She went into premature labor at 25 weeks and delivered the baby at the scene. The baby was taken to the hospital, where officials said it was in “critical condition.”
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
