Birth educator Kristin Dickerson and her husband, Troy Dickerson, of Rosenberg, Texas have GoPro footage of one of the most monumental days of their life. Troy recorded his wife going into labor as they rushed to a nearby hospital on his GoPro, which is now a viral video.
Troy drove 95 mph to a Houston area hospital, where he reassured his wife they would make it as she cried out in pain. As it turns out, they sort of made it, as Kristin delivered her baby while standing up right outside of the car on the hospital’s curb.
“I’m thrilled to have the footage. I’m more hesitant to send it to people, because it’s such an intimate moment for us, but as a birth educator, it’s really cool to let people see that our bodies know what to do,” she told ABC News.
Hardly out of the car, a team of nurses rushed to help Kristin as her husband helped deliver baby Truett. Troy actually used his GoPro to video the births of their first two children; Turner, 4 and Tillman, 2, but Truett’s was the most dramatic of the three.
Kristin told Click2Houston, "I tell my students, 'This will never happen to you, I promise!' But I do teach them about emergency birth so they'll be prepared for it, to take some of the fear out of it."
