Baby boy could not wait to see the world for just one minute longer.

*some readers may find the below images graphic.

Jes Hogan is a mum of six from Kansas in the US. After experiencing some contractions, Jes went to the hospital only to find that she was just 3cm dilated. She returned home with husband Travis to continue labouring at home.

After one long, powerful contraction, she knew things were finally progressing. “Travis, I think this is it,” she told her husband.

“As we neared the last turn to the hospital I began screaming that the baby was coming. He honked the horn rapidly as I screamed through the contractions and he pulled quickly into the ER drive,” she says.

Ms Hogan and her husband made it just past the second set of automatic doors in the ER. The couple’s photographer had also arrived and yelled to the hospital staff that Ms Hogan was going to have the baby. Immediately.

“I know at this point I said something to the effect of, ‘oh god, he’s here.’ Then I started to take my pants off because I could feel my body pushing the baby’s head out.”

Her husband told her that the nurse that first reached them was supporting her baby’s head. “He still had his hands on baby’s head too, as well as my back while they laid us down. That same nurse gently removed his cord that was loosely around his neck. He arrived on the floor just inside the entrance of the emergency room at 3:38 am. Less than 5 minutes from the time my water broke at home,” she says.

  • Such wonderful photos of the birth and the love all the girls have for their new baby brother. The hospital staff were so quick to arrive and assist in little Max’s birth.


  • Wow, amazing photos! I loved that the couple shared such intimate photos and the story wasn’t paired with a stock photo!


  • Wow, that was quick and forceful ! This birth will always be remembered by the staff in the hospital, this family and wider their family and their friends


  • Thankfully they had a happy and safe outcome.


  • Oh wow, amazing. Love birth pictures and to hear about them.


  • That’s amazing.


  • Thank you for sharing your son’s sensational entry into the world. What a wonderful family he has to look after him. Congratulations to you all.


  • Oh my goodness, so amazing, very candid, thanks for sharing.


  • I only just made it to hospital with one of mine, into ER put into a wheelchair and delivered as we reached the ward doors.


  • Hopefully not too many people walked past during that time. I can’t imagine what some of the reactions would have been. Surely she should have not been sent home. What if they had lived further away from the hospital. I know one lady in labour who was sent home because there was no beds even though she was vomitting more than is normal. He husband rang the hospital later and was told not to come in yet as there was still no beds. A hour later he rang and told them to be ready, that he was taking her to hospital whether they liked it not. Result was emergency c-section


  • My daughter’s birth was really fast as well but I was at least in a delivery room!


  • Jess should not have been sent home especially if it was her 6th baby. If I WAS THE MIDWIFE ON DUTY I would have kept her in the hospital. Multiparas can dilate rapidly.


  • This happens quite a bit but more often is in the car park of the hospital. It is a lovely story I MUST ADMIT.


  • What a beautiful story and amazing pictures- brought tears to my eyes :)


  • OMG, what an amazing birth experience. Mine was long, arduous and difficult so I can’t relate to speedy births.
