I am glad it was so easy for her.

I hope she plans a UC if she has another.

Unfortunately, if she plans to go to the hospital for the next one, the OB will want to induce.

She probably didn't have time. It's not the first time something like this has happened.

What is that one book....something like True Stories From The Emergency Room, they had a few in there about births happening so fast that the baby ended up in pants leg and they had to cut the pants leg.
They had a scary one about a mom who was wearing snowpants....not like the kid ones, but like the men ones...Caterpillar Brand, maybe? By the time they got to the baby it wasn't breathing, but they got him breathing and it was a happy ending.

It wasn't that she went all that fast it has more to do with the weather here. The roads were really bad that day! most people were warned not to go out unless absolutely neccessary.

I once attended a woman whose baby was held up by her girdle.

Around here (I don't know if it's cultural or coincidental) most of the Hispanic moms wear girdles during pregnancy. Sure enough, this lady had on her girdle. She was clearly laboring hard, and a security guard rushed her from the ER back to L&D (actually quite a haul) in a wheelchair. She was helped onto the bed, and as we took off her girdle, the baby came right along with it. The security guard hadn't had the time to leave, and he clapped after the baby was born. He was actually quite moved by his first childbirth.

That woman must have been going commando.

My last baby was held in by my underpants.

I was telling dh to get a pair of scissors and cut them off. Dh replied that it would be faster for him to just slide my panties off rather than try to find a pair of scissors :

I would hate to have like that. No privacy, everyone talking about it. Precipitous births can be very traumatic, or so I read. I need labor to process what is happening, the huge transition.

My 33 hour labor was on the long side, but honestly, I think 24 hours would be the perfect length for me.

Hi! I know this story makes this woman's labor sound easy but fast DOES NOT mean easy! It can take a very long time for a woman to process such a quick birth!!!

I totally agree.
My last labor was 45 minutes and it was very traumatic for me. It took quite a while to process everything and it is the only one of my 4 births where I said "never again" of course now I'm 35+ weeks pregnant with #5
My biggest anexiety this time is a fast birth. I'll take 24 hours over 45 minutes any day of the week :

Lucky for her. Connellsville isn't exactly a bastion of natural birth advocacy. In our church there not *one* woman avoided a section. :

I wouldn't say it was tramatic for me really, but I was pushing w/ my undies on during my home birth. I had only been in labor 2 hours & it wasn't really registering in my head that I was pushing & that this baby was comeing fast. Fortunatly I had to poo or I might have had my baby in my pants too Even once I went to the bathroom, I still never put out towels or pads & I could feel the baby crowning in my hands. Good thing the midwife showed up just before he actually came out. :

Yep. I had a friend who was planning a FSBC birth, but had a very precipitious birth (less than 15 mins from 1st contraction to baby being born in bathroom), and it was very traumatic.

My labors were only about 12 hours each, and that was long enough to get used to the idea

I dunno. I enjoyed labor except for all the ignorant a-holes around me. I'd hate a short labor, I'm looking to throw a family party at home the next time. I'd hate to call everyone to tell them to start making their way over and the baby be an hour old by the time they get here.

I want a nice slow labor like with DS. thursday night to sunday, perfect.

An emergency room physician cut the umbilical cord in the parking lot, and doctors attended to Johnson until she could be taken to Uniontown Hospital, which has a maternity unit.
I'm wondering why they cut the cord in the parking lot. They've had snow falling in PA and they couldn't wait to cut the cord until they got the little guy inside the building?
