Woman gives birth to 10lb baby in car and dad captures the whole thing on video

 “A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. So, love your mother because you will never get one”…

The video, which was posted on YouTube on July 16, 2015, Thursday, opens with the caption, ‘We’ve been driving for 45 mins. Already’.

The unbelievable moment a woman gives birth to a 10lb baby in the front seat of a car as she’s being driven to a birthing center near Houston, Texas.

The number one question the couple has been asked? ‘Why did you keep driving?’

Jonathan Pettijohn said, “For one thing, we don’t have a cell phone with service, so we couldn’t have called anyone if I would’ve pulled over. Number two, she said she wanted me to keep driving”

Lesia Pettijohn says, “I can’t believe so many people want to see something like that.”

The couple had planned on a natural birth at a birth center but Jonathan said, “He came really quick. With our other two, it took more than an hour after the water broke.”Jonathan Pettijohn told KTRK it was not the way they had planned his birth but he thought, “Just keep her calm, me getting all worked up isn’t going to help her any.”Lesia says, “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.”

This was their third child, and in just minutes Leslia goes from contractions, to her water breaking, to a baby in the front seat of the family car.




Lesia takes her pants down and delivers the baby on her own as her husband pulls to a stop on the side of the road. ” I reached over with my right hand and felt his head. Once I felt that, I knew I had to push”, Lesia said.
