Dad-to-Be Films Wife in Labor While Speeding to Hospital at 95 MPH
A dad rushes his frantic wife to the hospital with a baby, capturing every chaotic moment right until the baby is born outside of the hospital. It is a video taking the Internet by storm, capturing the pain and the beauty of childbirth.
The entire 10-minute-long film was taken by attaching a GoPro camera to the father’s head. It goes from the car ride to the hospital, with the mother screaming and groaning, to just outside the hospital where the baby is birthed by a team of several nurses. It seems it was a close call for the mother, as the moment their car parks in front of the hospital, she is unable to move to the wheelchair they are provided.
“I’m thrilled to have the footage,” the mother later told ABC News. “I’m more hesitant to send it to people, because it’s such an intimate moment for us, but as a birth educator, it’s really cool to let people see that our bodies know what to do.”
