A teacher in Colorado reportedly gave birth on the sidewalk outside her school after mistaking labor pains for false contractions. Fortunately, the school’s principal and dean were on hand to help out.
When she woke up on Tuesday morning, she reportedly was experiencing cramps, but she wrote them off as Braxton Hicks (also known as false contractions that don’t indicate labor).
Lindsay Agbalokwu, she went to school and presented an award during a school assembly in the morning. But soon she realized she needed to go to the hospital. However it was too late.
“Then all of a sudden, it was just so much pressure and pain, I was like, ‘I think she’s coming now! I think we need to just call 911,’” Agbalokwu told KMGH.
A fellow teacher and her principal put down a sleeping bag and started helping her. Firefighters soon arrived and finished the delivery.
“I just like randomly think about it and text my mom, ‘I just gave birth on the sidewalk outside my school!’ This is so crazy!” Agbalokwu said.
Her daughter, Zara, came into the world healthy and weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces.
