It was 8am in the morning and I was lying in my bed thinking I should get up when I felt a pop. My waters had just burst and I started getting labour pains straight away. We quickly got up and dressed and drove my other children to my inlaws to stay while we went to the hospital. By this stage it was peak hour and the main road to the hospital was so busy as well as being stopped by lolly pop ladies at school crossings, so my husband had to drive down the tram lines in order to get to the hospital as at this stage I was having quite strong and frequent contractions and he was starting to get worried and stressed. Luckily there were no trams in the way and we drove directly to the hospital. I could feel the urge to push the baby out as we got to the hospital car park. My husband jumped out of the car and called for help in the car park. The summons anyone in the hospital to help and I think half of the staff were in the car park with me when my son was born in the front seat of my car. It was a bit stressful but it all worked out in the end and a healthy boy was born. He is now 5 years old and has started school. My obstetrician said if I was going to have any more babies she was going to teach my husband how to deliver them as it happened way too fast.

  • What a great story! I can’t help but think that my husband would’ve thrown me onto the carpark floor to prevent all the blood going onto his precious front seat! Lol.


  • Wow what a great birthing story to be able to tell i bet your hubby was in a bigger panic than you as men normally are lol.
    Im glad everything turned out well for you and i agree with the doctors maybe a few birthing lessons for hubby would be good.

  • Love great birth stories like yours. Unique little fellow I’ll bet.

    • Yes, a great 21st birthday story I think and I still have the same car. Maybe he can have that for his 21st ha ha.


  • Haha wow what a quick labour! I don’t envy you – I almost gave birth in an ambulance and it was a rather unpleasant experience with all the bumping lol. At least you’d stopped by the time he came :)
