A woman went out for a night on the town and got a big surprise – she ended up delivering her firstborn on the dance floor!
The 19-year-old new mom was enjoying a night out with friends at O’Club in Toulouse, France when she went into labor at around 5:30 a.m., according to La Depeche.
French Woman Gives Birth to Baby on Night Club Dance Floor at 5:30 A.M.
It was nearly closing time when the club’s manager, Marie-Helene, was alerted that one of the club-goers was giving birth. O’Club’s employees immediately called for help, but ended up relying on the paramedics to walk them through the delivery process as everything happened so fast.
“We had to react very quickly,” Marie-Helene told the paper. “The girl was not panicked, but worried.”
The expectant mom was allegedly still at the club so late because she had been experiencing a stomach ache which made it difficult for her to walk.
The young mom gave birth to a healthy baby boy right there on the dance floor. The paramedics arrived to check on the new mom and her child shortly after the baby was born.
“I hope with all my heart that she will give us news,” Marie-Helene said. She also joked that the new baby has “free admission for life” into the club.
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.
