We’ve heard many special, moving, incredible and sometimes funny birth stories from relatives and other women in the hospital. I’m now wondering how common it is to have an unusual delivery story.
There are somewhat common cases, such as giving birth in the car – not quite making it to the hospital – or in a bathroom, and there are those more unique cases as welcoming the newest member of the family on a plane or in a department store.
Those last two examples come with their own urban legends. Rumor has it that if you give birth on a plane, you receive free flights for life, and if you give birth in a department store, it provides many gifts for baby and mother.
Our delivery in a hospital seems rather mundane in comparison!
What unusual birth stories do you have in your family? Were any of your relatives born in unusual circumstances? Did you give birth on a plane and get free flights?
We’d love to hear about your experiences. Share them in the comments below.
