It looks like a family in Los Angeles is going to have one hell of a story to share with their baby boy when he grows up. A mother gave birth in an Uber car, with some assistance from the driver, though it’s something that neither party suspected when the trip was booked. The Uber driver said it was the “most prettiest, ugliest, beautiful” thing he has ever seen when he saw the baby come into the world in the backseat of his car last Friday.
“When we got into the Uber it took two minutes to have a baby,” mother Erica Davidovich told WBNG. “But the Uber driver had to tell me, do you want me to get a towel or did your water break? I said it’s gonna break in like five to 10 hours, I don’t need a towel. And by the time I said that, 30 seconds later, my water broke. And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry about your car!’ That’s all I could think about.”
Once the baby started coming out, Uber driver Raymond Telles called 911 and was able to coach the father on delivering the baby, according to 10 TV. Niv Davidovich, the husband and father, said it was a relatively easy process. “It was a nice, easy, quick mostly, delivery. And then, an hour later, that’s what we were doing.”
His wife said her doctor told her to labor at home as long as possible. “I was worried to come in and get sent home. So listened to her. I labored at home. But two hours later, I had a baby,” Mrs. Davidovich said. “It’s just Uber. You expect to take someone from point A to point B. It was the most prettiest, ugliest, beautiful. It was a mixture,” Telles recalled. I know I will never be in a situation like that again.”
