Baby born into mother's sweatpants on highway

HAMIOTA, Manitoba, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A Manitoba woman said her son was born into her pant leg while she and her fiance were attempting to make the hour and a half drive to the hospital.

Aimee Renard, 24, said she and her fiance, Jay Goleski, were visiting her father in Hamiota, Manitoba, and staff at the nearby Hamiota health center told her to make the drive to a hospital in Brandon when her water broke, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Tuesday.

However, Renard said it was only about 40 minutes before baby Jaxyn insisted on entering the world.

"I just started taking deep breaths and as time went on, it was like, OK, the baby's head is there. So like I have to push," Renard said.

"And [Jay's] like, 'no don't.' I told him to stop the truck. And as he was stopping the truck, I pushed out the baby."

Renard said she felt the infant slip into the leg of her sweatpants and the parents then heard a cry.

"It was kind of terrifying," Renard said. "But it was pretty exciting, I guess. I just pulled down my pants a little bit. And took him out. And the cord was wrapped around his neck. So Jay unwrapped the cord from his neck."

An ambulance soon arrived to take the mother and newborn the rest of the way to the hospital, where they were said to be doing well.
