It was not what I planned, but it ended without any intervention, with a healthy baby and people supporting me from our sides. It was beautiful,” said the mother.
Last Saturday, March 3, photographer Tammy Karin shared photos on her Facebook page showing a woman giving birth in the hospital corridor. The case happened in the United States in July 2017. Mother of five girls, this was the sixth gestation of Jessica Wright Hogan and until then everything was going well. When the contractions came and got closer, she went to the hospital.
“After 4 hours in the tub, getting on the ball and walking down the aisles, we decided to try to keep our birth plan free of interventions. So we chose to leave the hospital because there was no progress and contractions began to spread. We spent the next few days gently encouraging contractions in the hope of going into labor, “she said in a report on the photographer’s website .
When she went home, the mother continued to follow her routine and said that she even questioned if her body had lost the ability to alert her that the time to have the baby was approaching. Until, on a Sunday, after spending the day with the little ones in the pool, she began to feel the contractions again , but since they were not so strong, Jessica decided to get some sleep.
About an hour later, she woke up in severe pain and told her husband that she was afraid of having the baby home. And it was the instant she tried to get out of bed that Jessica felt the purse burst . Facing this, the children’s father reassured her that it would be time for them to go to the hospital. Even with difficulty getting into the car and no time to put on the shoes, the mother went to the maternity. On the way, he was still able to call people nearby and even warned Tammy, the photographer who would record the birth.
“Fortunately, it was 3 o’clock in the morning and the roads were empty in our vicinity. As we approached the last ride back to the hospital, I started yelling that the baby was coming, “he said. Jessica’s husband and the photographer asked for help and the American finally got into the hospital.
“I started taking off my pants because I could feel my body pushing the baby’s head out. I placed my hand and felt his head crown . I looked at my husband and said, ‘Travis, get him . ‘ Without any hesitation, he did just that and I felt my body involuntarily pushing my head for the rest of the way, “he commented.
The nurses came to help them, put Jessica down there in the hallway and removed the umbilical cord that was around the child’s head. The parents revealed that it was less than 25 minutes between the time the purse broke while still at home and the birth of the small Maxwell, who came into the world weighing 2.5 pounds and measuring 12 inches . Fortunately, everything went well and Momma got to enjoy the youngest after the fright. She thanked the affection of her husband, who had been at her side all the time.
“It was the craziest birth, but also the most perfect birth. It was not what I planned, but it ended without any intervention, with a healthy baby and people supporting me from our sides. It was beautiful and I will always love all the memories “, concluded the mother.
