US woman delivers baby while driving to doctor
HEYBURN, Idaho (AP) — A woman has given birth while driving to the doctor and delivered her daughter by herself.
Shawna Uriguen delivered the 6-pound, 7-ounce (2.92 kilogram) baby Tuesday, the Times-News reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/1ocS1tx). She was on the phone with her fiance and said she was trying to find a place to pull over when the baby was born. She said she quickly got the baby out of her pant leg and checked to make sure she was OK.
Uriguen, 29, said she had been having contractions but didn’t think she was in labor. The baby, named Kimber Marie Crown, was due on Saturday.
Uriguen said medics arrived in minutes, and she was taken to the hospital to get checked out. Uriguen said she and the baby are fine.
