A pregnant woman went to the hospital after experiencing only a few minor labor pains but her birth quickly escalated! Right after she entered the hospital, she dropped to the floor and gave birth in the hospital, aided by her own husband! The whole ordeal was captured on the hospital’s security camera.

A 6lb-8oz. baby was born on August 14, but not in the most traditional way! Susana Privada gave birth to her baby girl in a Florida hospital — but she didn’t even make it into her hospital room. After arriving at the hospital and requesting a wheelchair, the woman started giving birth on the lobby floor!

Florida Woman Gives Birth On Hospital Lobby Floor 30 Minutes After Going Into Labor

Susana explained that she only felt a few pains, took a shower and headed to the hospital. She didn’t make it much past the entrance of the hospital before she realized that the baby wasn’t waiting for anyone! The entire birth was caught on the hospital’s security camera.

“I could feel the baby coming,” Susana told CBS Miami. “All I could do was drop to the lobby floor.”

After Susana got down on the floor, her husband, Carlos Saravia, quickly jumped in to help her.

A nurse was arriving at the hospital for his shift when he saw Susana on the floor and immediately stopped to help deliver the baby. He noticed that the umbilical cord had gotten wrapped around the baby’s neck, so he carefully freed her. He told CNN that the baby did not cry at first, which was the only time in the whole ordeal that the nurse felt “nervous.” After cleaning the baby’s eyes and mouth, she was soon crying and healthy as could be!

The whole labor process over within 30 minutes! Talk about a speedy arrival!

Hospital Releases Statement

We are happy to report that mom and baby Dayana are both doing fine.

The hospital is keeping in good spirits about the whole event. Jackson Health CEO Carlos Migoya gave a statement reading:

We can’t guarantee that every Jackson patient will have such a speedy delivery, but we can guarantee the best care for whatever happens with your birth.

What a great ending to such a bizarre story.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Would you have stayed as calm as Susana?

My developer is trying to persuade me to move
to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

Any help would be really appreciated!

The newborn shocked hospital staff when he tipped the scales at 6.
Some people believe it is wrong to hold your baby to
sleep because the baby does not learn to sleep alone,
but the baby did not adhere to length sizes if you
both enjoy a hug that could be right for you. Through teaching
sign language for babies at their New York headquarters the teachers at Baby Fingers are able to educate children in an
additional language while simultaneously instilling other valuable benefits in their infant that go on to enhance IQ, youth literacy and more.
