minivan mom

I just read the most amazing story about a local mom who delivered her baby in the front seat of a Toyota minivan.

What a way to begin your life?

In today’s World-Herald, Hope Brown shared her account of giving birth to a healthy seven pound, five ounce baby boy later named Beckett Anthony Brown.

“My wife is such a trouper,” husband Chad Brown said. “I’m so grateful for what she went through. It’s something we’ll never forget.”

Mom was so calm, poised hours leading up to the dramatic delivery.

My favorite part of the story:

“She dried her hair. Had a contraction. Flat-ironed her hair. Another contraction. Each time, she would pause and pace.”

She eventually gave birth while waiting for help in the van parked in the hospital’s emergency room parking lot.

Birth centers, midwives and home births weren’t for me.

I preferred to give birth twice in a hospital. Call me crazy but having my chubby arm squeezed by a blood pressure cuff every five minutes was comforting.

A homebirth would’ve caused me too much anxiety.

But it’s great that women have more birthing options, including the new Midwife’s Place in Bellevue.

I was a nervous wreck when I had my first daughter, Alejandra.

The pressure to get an epidural was overwhelming. And I’ll admit it, I eventually cracked.
