Accidental Subway Birth

June 26, 2008

On my old blog I used to enjoy publishing accidental home birth stories. Actually many of them were taxi cab or car birth stories, lol! But this one is unique:

Woman Gives Birth on NY Subway platform

The story relates how the onlookers clapped and cheered and gave the Dad high fives. I wonder how these people view birth now? Instead of the uncontrolled screaming and carrying on you see women doing in the movies and on TV, they saw a normal birth – albeit in an unusual location! Watching this probably changed their ideas about birthing women no doubt.

I love collecting these stories because I have YET to read one in which mom and baby weren’t perfectly healthy :-)

Here’s to more accidental home births.
