Kicker – One impatient baby

MARY REICHARD, HOST: This was not one of those delivery videos some expectant mothers hope for.

Susan Anderson’s husband was driving them to a birthing center in Florida. And well, at least she made it to the parking lot.  

Sandra Loviana is one of the midwives who ran out to help. A doorbell camera caught all the action.

AUDIO: It’s okay, it’s okay. I’m a midwife. She’s going to have a baby!

Mom was standing up when everything happened quickly, so quickly that the midwife literally caught the baby and then handed the baby girl to mom.

AUDIO: [Baby cries]

Both mom and baby Julia are doing well. Whew. I think that’s a super power!
