We all have a vision in our heads of what we want the birth of our baby to be like. Often these plans work out, but sometimes babies just don’t agree with your plan and come into this world on their own terms.
Susan Anderson from Margate, Florida was almost inside the birthing centre where she had planned to have a water birth, but her baby decided she can’t wait another second to be born – and just slipped out while mom and dad was still in the parking lot.
Luckily, the midwife was there to catch her.
Baby Julia and Susan are both happy, healthy and recovering at home now.
