Mum Gave Birth To Baby In Just Four Minutes But Unfortunately Her Husband Didn’t There
We’ve all heard stories of people who have gone into ʟᴀʙᴏʀ and delivered their baby within a very short period of time. Or maybe you’ve heard stories of women who’ve given birth in the car on the way to the hospital. Precipitous ʟᴀʙᴏʀ is ʟᴀʙᴏʀ that happens very fast. So, it’s worth getting the scoop so you can be ready in case it happens to you.
A mum has shared how sᴛᴜɴɴᴇᴅ she was to give birth to her baby in just four minutes. TɪᴋTᴏᴋ user Kim (@kims_worldxo) took to the platform to share with viewers how she had only visited the hospital for a regular checkup during the pregnancy. However, she was sʜᴏᴄᴋed when a midwife told her she’d be welcoming her baby into the world ‘that day.’
‘This is what led to me giving birth in four minutes,’ she explained in the clip. I had a doctors’ appointment that morning at like 10 o’clock so I went to the hospital to get the normal check-up and the doctor checked my ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ᴘʀᴇssᴜʀᴇ, ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴀʙʏ’s ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙᴇᴀᴛ and just decided to check down there to see how everything was going.’
Upon inspection, a midwife asked Kim if she was feeling any pain. Kim replied that she had experienced aches, but thought they were Braxton Hicks contractions. From that conversation with the midwife, she gave birth in four minutes. Things progressed so fast that Kim almost gave birth as she was walking to the ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀʏ sᴜɪᴛᴇ. Once she got to the bed she ‘pushed the baby out and that was it – it was done.’
In the comments viewers told Kim how lucky she was. ‘This is every woman’s dream birth,’ one person ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴇɴᴛᴇᴅ.
Another added: ‘How lucky that you were already there!’
After sharing the tale, someone criticised Kim for not telling her husband prior so that he could be there for the birth of his child. However, Kim hit back.
She said: ‘I wish I could have let him know, but unfortunately I did not know I was going to give birth on that day. I wish he could’ve been there for the birth of our child, but it was just too quick.’
