Incredible Delivery: Woman Gives Birth in Parking Lot While Standing Up

A remarkable event unfolded in Florida, United States, on June 19, as a woman unexpectedly gave birth while standing in a parking lot. This eager baby girl couldn’t wait to enter the world!

Suzanne Anderson and her husband, Joseph, were on their way to a birthing center when Suzanne felt the urge to push.

Once Joseph parked the car in front of the facility, the couple hurriedly attempted to enter. However, Suzanne suddenly gave birth before they could make their way inside.

“By the time we got to the first step, the head was coming out,” Suzanne was quoted as saying.

Although they couldn’t enter the building, a midwife named Sandra Lovaina came to their aid in the parking lot.

The Natural Birthworks birthing center also shared security camera footage of this unusual birth on its YouTube page. The short clip showed Lovaina crouching on the ground, assisting Suzanne, who was hunched over and holding onto her husband.

Due to Suzanne’s screams, the police approached the small group. Lovaina quickly reassured the officers that she was a midwife and was helping Suzanne with her birth.

Seconds later, Lovaina caught the baby girl as she slipped through the side of Suzanne’s shorts. The midwife then handed the child to Suzanne, who embraced her newborn as they entered the building.

“This momma had a super-fast labor. In midwife terms, it was precipitous,” the center stated.

A precipitous labor or rapid labor is characterized by labor that can last as little as three hours and is typically less than five hours, according to the American Pregnancy Association.

Suzanne later explained that she was rushing to enter a birthing tub in the center as she initially planned to have a water birth. However, baby Julia had other ideas.

Meanwhile, Gelena Hinkley, another midwife at the facility, mentioned that Suzanne had been their client before.

“We’ve done her other deliveries, and round two was just a lot faster,” Hinkley said in the report. “No one was expecting it to be that fast.”

The birthing center also assured that Suzanne and Julia are doing amazingly well.
