This video of woman giving birth in car has gone viral

A woman in Texas on Thursday gave birth to a baby in a car before they could get to the hospital


Its hard enough having a baby in the hospital with experts around, but this woman not only had a baby in a car, she made it look easy.

In a video posted on YouTube Thursday, a woman gives birth to a baby boy in a car on the way to a birth center in Houston, Texas. The father, who's driving, films it all on a GoPro camera on his lap.

Amazingly enough, both parents take this frightening experience exceptionally well, with dad calmly giving the mom instructions throughout the process.

"He's breathing, if he's crying, he's breathing, but hold him upside down, babe. Hold him upside down and pat him on the booty," he says after the baby is delivered.

Near the end of the video, the dad jokes "So I wonder if we still have to pay for using birth center?"

According to KTRK-TV, the couple, Jonathan and Lesia Pettijohn, had to just keep driving, as they didn't have a working cell phone to call for help.

"I really didn't wanna have him in the car...I was scared, I didn't know if he would be breathing ok," Lesia told KTRK. Little Josiah,  the couple's third child, is fine despite the unusual circumstances of his birth.
