A pregnant mother was forced to take matters into her own hands after she unexpectedly went into labour.

Sara Tolliday, from the US, was rushing to hospital with her husband Sam in the early hours of Saturday morning when her waters suddenly broke, rep0rts 7 news.

“You know, I delivered her myself, I guess,” she told US television station WMUR9.

After her husband pulled over in a Target car park, Tolliday said it was all over in a flash as things “progressed a little faster than expected”.

“It was just so intense and fast, but then I was like, ‘She’s out.’ And (Sam) was like, ‘What do you mean, she’s out?’ And he stopped the car, looked over and there she was,” she said.

“It’s pretty amazing. Your body just does amazing things,” Tolliday added.

  • Wow ! I feel for the dad ! He missed it !


  • I know one Mum who waited until her contractions were 10 minutes apart before she went to hospital. They lived about 10 minutes from the hospital. It was her 3rd baby. She knew that if she went in too soon they would only check her and send her home again. The baby was born about 3 hours after they got to the hospital.


  • My first was only 2 hours and 40 minutes from first contraction to last push. Second was a little longer but not much. Not so fast I didn’t make it to hospital though


  • Beautiful story, well done !


  • How scary would this be.. although just goes to show what our bodies can do. Congratulations on the safe, yet fast, arrival of your baby


  • I’m so glad my births were never this fast. At least she’ll be prewarned for the next one..lol.


  • Oh! That was quick and fast!! Well done!
    I went to hospital at 9 am. My daughter was born at 16:30.


  • So glad it all went well,a story to tell her daughter in the future!


  • Go mumma! What a story! Mine was flat out boring in comparison.
