New Jersey mom delivers her own baby


A New Jersey mom was home alone when she went into labor last week. She ended up delivering her baby girl all by herself, just a few minutes after labor started!

Melissa Dawson would have loved a 60-second labor had she not been at her home all alone.

“I got a sharp pain and oh my gosh the baby’s coming. Another sharp pain – oh my gosh, i feel the head. Another sharp pain. Oh my god, there’s a baby on the floor, literally that quick,” says Melissa.

Her husband on the phone with her while he was dropping off their two-year-old at the in-laws 20 minutes away.

The nanny camera in the next room picking up those terrifying sounds of labor.

You can even hear the baby’s first cries and somehow Melissa, in what she calls an out-of-body experience, took this selfie.

Her husband with the help of a neighbor got emergency responders to the house.

They bashed in the door and then you could see them wheel out mom and baby.

Both mom and daughter are checked out at the hospital and sent home two days later.
