Amazing Woman Giving Birth In The Backseat Of Her Car

An obstetrician in Brazil gave birth in her car — and the stunning moment was captured on camera.

In an Instagram video posted on Oct. 24, Dr. Gabriela Correia, 33, is shown having a baby in a gas station parking lot. Correia was joined by her husband, Gilberto Godoy, doula Joana Nunes, fellow OB/GYN Larissa Gomes and photographer Deborah Ghelman, who documented the entire delivery.

While speaking with local news outlet globo, Correia said she and Godoy called in reinforcements when it became clear they weren’t going to make it the hospital in time. Correia was 9 centimeters dilated. Once the cervix has reached 10 centimeters, it’s time to start pushing.

“I had a good support system,” Correia said.

According to Ghelman, everyone in the vehicle remained calm while running on adrenalin.

“We were anxious to know if it was a boy or a girl, but we opted to wait and find out in the moment and experience a different adventure,” Correia explained in the interview.

“I just didn’t think it would be so many different things at once!”

Correia and Godoy are now the proud parents of two sons: Dante and baby Artur.

Artur, who was born on Oct. 24, has already been discharged from the hospital and is home with his family.

“He’s super healthy and wonderful,” Correia told the Brazilian outlet. She also thanked her support network.
