Woman Gives Birth To 10lb Baby In Car While Husband Films And Drives To Hospital
Lesia and John Pettijohn thought they had time to spare before their baby was born. However, forty-five minutes into their drive to the Bay Area Birth Center in Texas, Lesia went into labor and gave birth to their first son, Josiah. The footage was filmed using a GoPro camera.
“The only reason I would pull over is if there is something wrong that needed to be dealt with immediately,” Jonathan told KHOU. Wife Lesia added, “I was probably freaking out way more than I should have. But I really didn’t want to have him in the car. I was scared. I didn’t know if he’d be breathing OK or if he would need anything else.”
Josiah weighed about 10lb at birth, and is the couple’s third child. Jonathan is a machinist, and he claims that he didn’t pull over because his wife told him to keep driving, and they didn’t have a working cellphone with them.
