13The 10-Pound Birth In Front Seat Of Minivan
Instead of pulling over, she insisted that her husband kept driving. Finally, he ended up pulling the car over as Lesia gave birth right there in the front seat and he somehow managed to video it.
Rumor has it that people from Texas like to do things in a big way. This story about Texas mom Lesia Pettijohn only proves that, in this case, the rumor is most definitely true. Giving birth to a 10-pound baby in the front seat of a minivan is no small
feat. But, doing it calm and collected while the cameras are rolling is a Texas-sized feat!
Pettijohn and her husband decided that it was time to head to the Bay Area Birth Center in Houston, Texas. If you've ever driven around Houston (or in Texas) then you know how long it can take to get to your destination. The parents of two daughters, ages one and two, had already been on the road for 45 minutes when Lesia realized they weren't going to make it to the birthing center on time.
Both parents were afraid of the baby arriving in the car because neither had a cell phone and wouldn't know what to do in an emergency situation. As it goes, the baby was perfectly fine entering the world via the passenger seat.
