NEWFOUNDLAND, CANADA – It may have been rush hour in Newfoundland, Canada, but Melissa Maher’s baby girl was in a hurry to be born.
Melissa was at home when her water broke around 5 p.m., the peak of rush hour.
On the way to the hospital, Melissa started to go into labor. Problem was that they were stuck in traffic.
Fortunately, Melissa’s mother-in-law was in the backseat with her and helped deliver the baby girl, before paramedics arrived.
The baby was named Julia Mary. Her middle name is a tribute to her grandmother who helped bring her into this world during a jam.
