In a video taking social media by storm, a mother miraculously gives birth to a healthy baby while in the passenger seat of her car. The now mother of five shared the video on Instagram, where she reflects, “it was crazy. But it was amazing.”

No stranger to chaos, the brave mom had her husband by her side and her four kids in the back seat when the newest member of their family decided it was time to make her debut.

The video may appear distressing, but the mom ensures others, in retrospect, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“There was something beyond special about getting to deliver my own baby,” she says. “No doctors or nurses, no lights, or busy people, no one interrupting a moment that should be the most special moments for families as they bring life into the world.”

This is certainly a day the Swinney family will remember forever, especially the young kids in the back, who did their mom proud and somehow remain unbelievably calm and quiet.

In the video, the husband, who filmed the whole scene while driving, tries to buy his wife more time, asking, “can you wait, like, two minutes?”

The woman answers her husband’s question with the only appropriate answer given the circumstance: She lets out more screams and moans as baby keeps on pushing. Moments after, the mother makes her final push and brings baby into the world.

The woman initially panics when her daughter is born, but once she sees her baby girl is breathing and appears healthy, she’s able to take in the beauty of the moment.

“The pain was there, but the joy and peace that followed in those minutes we got to spend alone with our sweet girl was more rewarding than anything I could have asked for,” she explains.

In fact, it’s something she wouldn’t trade for the world, and describes it as, “unrivaled to anything I could have imagined.”

“I witnessed my body take over and a baby be born into my hands,” she shares. “My body is not swollen, and I have no tears. I had my husband and children around me, and for five minutes, we embraced everything that happened without any interruption.”

The Swinney family’s delivery story is pretty unique, and it is right on par with some of these crazy delivery stories.
