Mother Gives Birth In Ambulance En Route to Hospital

An expectant mother had an unexpectedly eventful ambulance ride to the hospital on Friday night, giving birth to her child on her way to the hospital, RÚV reports.

The ambulance was transporting the mother from the Suðurnes peninsula in Southwest Iceland to the National and University Hospital in Reykjavík. The mother went into labour on the way and gave birth to her child in the ambulance on Reykjanesbraut. A midwife was present during the birth and both mother and child are in good health.
