Mother Credits Daily Pelvic Exercises for Swift Car Birth: Delivers Baby in Just Four Pushes

…By Joseph Benjamin for TDPel Media. Jade Mead, a mother of two, attributes her smooth and rapid delivery in her car to three weeks of daily pelvic exercises.

The 35-year-old relied on her fitness routine, including deep squats and side lunges, during her last two pregnancies to ensure a quick and easy birth process.

During her second labor, Jade’s contractions progressed so rapidly that she and her husband, Ryan, were unable to reach the hospital in time.

Instead, Ryan, a 40-year-old digital marketer, pulled over on the roadside and delivered their baby within just four pushes.

The newborn, named Lottie, weighed 7lbs 2oz.

Following the impromptu roadside birth, both mother and baby were taken to the hospital for a check-up.

They have since returned home and are in good health.

Jade, who is also a fitness coach, shared her experience, stating, “I had to give birth in the middle of a roadside.

There were no lights, I had no pain relief, and I was screaming with every push.

It all happened so quickly!”

Jade had previously encountered a similar situation during the birth of her first daughter, Mali, three years ago.

Mali arrived three weeks early, preventing Jade from continuing her birthing preparation exercises until full-term.

During her pregnancies, Jade focused on hip-opening exercises, incorporating yoga, stretching, deep squats, child’s pose, cat-cow pose, deep lunge stretches, and side-lunge stretches.

Additionally, she consumed raspberry leaf tea and practiced curb walking, where one foot is on the curb and the other on the road.

She maintained the same exercise regimen during the final three weeks of her second pregnancy, and her midwife predicted a similar labor experience.

Jade carried Lottie to full-term, and her contractions began on April 26, 2023, at 7 am.

Initially progressing slowly, Jade and Ryan believed that this labor would be different and delayed heading to the hospital.

However, labor suddenly intensified within the last hour.

At 6:30 pm, after putting their eldest daughter Mali to bed, they left her with Jade’s mother for safekeeping.

Unfortunately, this caused them to depart too late.

At 7 pm, they got into the car, and Jade’s body began shivering and shaking uncontrollably.

Contractions intensified as Ryan drove Jade to the hospital.

To distract herself from the pain, Jade utilized a TENS machine for muscle stimulation and squeezed a birthing comb.

She had no pain relief medication.

After just ten minutes in the car, Jade’s body naturally started pushing, and her waters broke.

Ryan had thoughtfully placed towels down before they began the journey.

Ryan immediately contacted their midwife at the Family Centre, who instructed him to pull over as Jade wouldn’t make it to the hospital.

They were then advised to call for an ambulance.

While Ryan managed both calls simultaneously, Jade experienced intense pain and pushed.

The midwife informed Ryan that Jade was crowning, and he needed to feel for the baby’s head.

Amidst the chaos, Jade screamed and pushed, causing Ryan’s hand to fly out along with the baby’s head.

On the roadside, Jade’s midwife and the emergency service operator tried to keep her calm as Ryan had to deliver the baby.

After two more pushes, Lottie was born at 7:28 pm.

Exhausted and in pain, Jade recalls the hazy details, mentioning that her eyes remained closed throughout the process.

Ryan wrapped Jade and Lottie in blankets while they waited for paramedics to arrive.

Jade delivered the placenta in the hospital and cut Lottie’s umbilical cord.

After four weeks, both Jade and Lottie are doing well, and Ryan jokingly considers a career in midwifery, remarking that he received once-in-a-lifetime practical training.
