“Our birth story!

The human body is truly an amazing thing. 8.5.2017 at about 10 AM I started having contractions. I was only 29 weeks and 4 days so I just figured they were Braxton hicks and decided to wait it out.

After about 45 minutes of consistent contractions increasing in intensity I decided I should probably go in. Well the contractions continued to get closer together and more intense and before I knew it, it was time to push. I called 911 because I was so scared.

They couldn’t understand me between the screams with contractions. So I handed the phone to my fiancé.

I pulled my pants off and reached down, sure enough his head was right there. I pushed one time and my miracle baby was here. When I looked down I realized he was still completely wrapped in the amniotic sac.

The dispatcher told us to pull over but I knew we would make it to the hospital before they would make it to us.

So I told Ean to keep driving. I was so scared. My Fiancé was so calm driving and on the phone with 911.

At first the baby was still and all I could do was pray he would be okay. And then I rubbed his face with my thumb and he pulled his little hands and feet up to his face as if he understood my prayers and wanted to reassure us he was okay.

About 7 minutes passed that I held this miracle baby in my hands until we made it to the hospital. He was 3lb 1oz. He’s doing wonderful, all things considered with all he went through I know he’s going to be an awesome little man! He is truly a miracle baby. We are so blessed to be his parents.”

Congratulations Mumma! Well done. We hope your little bubba continues to fight.

  • oh wow! how incredible and scary at the same time! she is very brave and lucky it went well. I don’t know what i would have done in that situation! she won’t be forgetting that anytime soon


  • WOW!!! Thats one hell of a story for his 21st! Good luck!


  • Congratulations – that is quite a birth story – very scary but also very special too. Hope the little one continues to do well.


  • Wow!! That would scare me to bits. I took the quad for a ride round the farm when I was over due by 4 days and every bump triggered a contraction and that had me worried we wouldn’t make it to hospital. It’s 40km from here so if it happened fast ?? Glad their all well.


  • Wow, a true miracle baby !!
    My daughter was born around 30weeks with a weight of 880grams. She wouldn’t have survived this.
    So great to hear your wee man is doing wonderfully well ! Hope he (and you as parents) continues to thrive !


  • Wow he certainly is one special bub. Well done mumma and wishing much health and happiness to all.


  • A scary situation but so happy it all went well!


  • Oh, luckily everything went fine. The baby is so tiny. Congratulations!!


  • Wow what an amazing story!


  • Congratulations. Yes, sometimes you can get to hospital while the ambulance would be coming to get you. being in the sac still probably helped to keep him warm too. I’m guessing he may have long legs.


  • such an incredible birth story :)
