US woman gives birth in vehicle on way to hospital for 2nd time

If a pregnant Stephanie Green asks for a ride to the hospital, beware: She has a history of giving birth in cars.

On Tuesday, for the second time in 17 months, Green had a baby while en route to a hospital. Doctors had planned to induce labor Thursday, but baby Zaria had other plans.

"I thought I was going to make it this time, but she changed all that very quickly," Green said.

Green's other daughter, 17-month-old Semajai, was born in a car after Mom got stuck in traffic.

Tuesday's first contraction came around 7 a.m., and Green called friend Shanika Lewis for a ride to the hospital. They were on the highway just blocks from a Raleigh hospital about an hour later when the contractions got more intense.

"We saw the exit on Lake Boone Trail and said, 'We are almost there,"' Green said. "But the water broke, and then out came the baby. Yep, we are not going to make it - yet again."

Lewis, who works at a hospital, helped with the delivery until emergency workers arrived.
