Seems like the miracle of life can literally hit you anytime, anywhere…
Through a short posting on Twitter, user @cieri shares her experience delivering her baby girl in a car while her husband was speeding away on route to the hospital.
You know what happened today?— Amalina (@cieri) June 27, 2019
I gave birth to #3.
In a car.
While husband was driving/speeding to get me to the hospital.
Based on the comment section of the Tweet, cieri had arrived at the hospital with a healthy and active newborn, together with the umbilical cord and placenta still attached. (Which was later taken care of by the doctors…)
Speaking from her newfound experience, cieri said that in such a tense situation, there was nothing more that could be done but to remain calm and collected.
Not really tips but, it really helps when you dont panic and keep calm.— Amalina (@cieri) June 27, 2019
Rileks dan breathhhhhh in nose breathhhhhh out mouth. Yang penting jgn panik— Amalina (@cieri) June 28, 2019
Whether it was fate or destiny, it would seem as though this “love for the open road” sorta-kinda runs in the family…
cieri’s aunt was apparently a fully fledged speed demon.

Sampai anak besar nanti kereta tu takkan dijual. Percaya lah— K (@khairulabuzaman) June 28, 2019
Translation: Believe me, they won’t sell the car even if when the kid is all grown up.
Some commenters also took the time to guess what would be written down on the child’s birth certificate.
Ada some possibility tempat lahir nak tulis apa— #LifeEnriched (@iwaaann28) June 28, 2019
1. Dalam kereta
2. Dalam Perjalanan ke Hospital
3. Lokasi bersalin (tempat tu nama apa when baby keluar)
For sure panjang kalau nak tulis dalam form dkt bhg tempat lahir nanti 😂
There’s a possibility that they’ll write down the place of birth as
1. Inside a car
2. On the way to the hospital
3. Delivery location (actual location where the baby came out)
Whatever it is, it’s going to be a long one…
Tahniah!— TenukBergulingGuling (@maktenuk) June 28, 2019
Cikgu : Di mana tempat kelahiran awak?
Dalam perjalanan ke hospital cikgu 😅. pic.twitter.com/ie0gyteHZV
Teacher: Where were you born?
On the way to the hospital, teacher.
And apparently (Much to the writer’s surprise, really…) these ‘born before arrival’ cases are quite the common occurrence, as commenters also shared their personal and second-hand experience about giving birth on the road.
Haha my husband pun lahir dalam kereta. Mak mertua cakap dia tak sabar nak keluar haha adoi— ソッェハ (@SitiSolleha_) June 28, 2019
Translation: My husband was also born inside a car. My mother-in-law said that he couldn’t wait to come out.
congrats sis!! hahaha sama macam my brother— kin (@athirahashikinn) June 28, 2019
Translation: Same as my brother.
sepupu i lg sikit nk beranak dlm grabcar. dlm kereta da terjerit2 dah sakit, elok turun kereta depan pintu hospital dlm keadaan berdiri baby keluar, sebaik sepupu pakai seluar gobos so xdela baby jatuh ke bawah— lost (@eppaaaaaaa) June 28, 2019
My cousin almost gave birth in a Grab Car. She was screaming and in pain on the way to the hospital. The baby came out while she was standing in the hospital lobby. Luckily she was wearing a pair of Gobos pants, so the baby didn’t fell on the floor.
A mother’s love really knows no bounds… Congratulations to the couple on welcoming their baby girl!
