Gives new meaning to the phrase "Out-of-Hospital Birth"

Blogging Baby reports that a British mom gave birth to baby girl on the sidewalk outside of a hospital while her husband had gone on ahead to fetch help and a wheelchair. This reminds me of an interesting statistic I learned this week - that babies born in cars have the lowest mortality rates of any birth location. Actually, it makes sense when you think about it. When babies come quickly there is usually no problem; it's when they come slowly or not at all that there may be trouble.
