So this happened.
A Texas woman gave birth on the curb in front of a hospital and her husband caught it all on his GoPro camera. Talk about a money shot!
In the early hours of June 28, Kristin Dickerson of Rosenberg, Texas was 42-weeks pregnant when her husband Troy rushed her to the Texas Medical Center. Troy decided to film the moment with his GoPro camera. When they finally arrived at the hospital valet, Kristin took one step out of the car and found herself unable to move. She then proceeded to deliver the baby right there on the pavement while her husband Troy captured every second on his GoPro camera.
The video begins with the couple driving along the freeway on their way to the hospital. In between Kristin’s screams of pain, she tells Troy she doesn’t think she can make it to the hospital and to stop at a closer facility.
Troy attempts to comfort his wife as they approach the hospital’s valet. When Troy dashes around the car to help Kristin get out, she tells him that she can feel the baby’s head.
“She had gotten out of the car and she had just froze, like stood there. And me and the valet guy were like, “Sit down! Sit down in the wheelchair!'” Troy told Click2Houston.
Kristin ended up giving birth right there on the curb. The couple’s son, Truett, was born at 2:05 a.m. A team of nurses came down to assist the couple and rushed Kristin and baby Truett into the labor and delivery unit to receive medical care.
Kristin told ABC News:
“I’m thrilled to have the footage,” said Kristin, who is a childbirth educator at the hospital. “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.”
Apparently, Troy had also filmed the birth of the couple’s other two children. But we’re guessing those didn’t occur on the sidewalk.
