Adelaide woman gives birth on side of road

A pregnant South Australian mum was forced to give birth on the side of the road.

Bianca Grant was being driven to Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital by her husband, Stephen Curran when they hit heavy traffic.

“Bianca was telling me to go round the cars, the ambulance on the phone told me to stay put,” Mr Curran told The Adelaide Advertiser.

“In the end, I just had to deal with it”.

He was forced to pull over to help his wife deliver the baby.

Luckily, the ambulance arrived about half an hour later.

“People were walking by and everyone could hear my Jurassic-style screams from the car,” Ms Grant said.

Mr Curran tried to put sheets over the car’s windows to give her as much privacy as he could because, “The last thing I wanted was to end up on YouTube from someone taking a video,” Ms Grant said.

Moments later, little Danica was born without any complications.

They were then taken to hospital where they were declared healthy and were released later that day.

“It was funny in a way. We can look back and laugh at the situation now because it had a happy ending,” he said.
