A nurse is back at home after delivering her own baby in a car outside the hospital where she works.
Katie Michael told WPMT she went into labor on Oct. 27 during rush-hour.
“It was about 25-30 minutes after my water broke that she decided she wanted to be here,” said Katie.
She and her husband rushed to the hospital, but Katie knew they weren’t going to make it.
“I knew she was going to be born in the car because she started coming out,” she said.
Katie has worked a lot of units at the hospital, but labor and delivery (L&D) wasn’t one of them.
“I do a lot of the units in the hospital but L&D is not one of them. [We] were joking that I can add L&D now because I was my own L&D nurse,” said Katie.
Thankfully, baby girl Ella Katherine Michael was born happy and healthy and is now at home.
