Ocean Mary was born in our Ford Escort en route to the hospital. I couldn't believe how fast things progressed, it was crazy! I was like a wild beast giving birth *on my hands and knees* in the front seat (pulled all the way down). EMT's arrived 7 minutes after her birth & we were taken to the closest hospital (not the one we were heading for), but everything went great. I needed one small stitch (in an odd place) & that's it. The hospital was totally accommodating to our wishes for declining the bath & hep B, etc. and she roomed in with us the whole time So, all in all, it wasn't exactly what we expected, but I think it was a great birth. I feel very empowered! I"ll post the whole story later (after I get some sleep!) & some pictures!
Ocean Mary
born at 8:55pm (based on 911 call!) 2/8/08
20" long, 7lb.14oz.

That's a good story!
I can't wait to hear more.
I wonder now, are you going to keep the car or sell it?

Wow, what a story! My mom had my little brother in an ambulance, and I think he enjoys having that interesting story to tell people about his birth. I'm sure your daughter will as well! Congratulations!
