Woman Gives Birth In MD Airport Bathroom

Officials say a woman gave birth to a healthy baby boy in a restroom at a Maryland airport shortly after getting off her flight.

Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean says an officer helped the woman deliver the child Sunday afternoon on the floor of a restroom in Concourse D. Dean says Maryland Transpiration Authority Police and the airport's fire and rescue department responded to a call of a woman in labor around 2:20 p.m.

The woman and baby were taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center.

    The article doesn't say that she was due, only that the baby was healthy. The baby could have been born early and still be healthy. Also, some people deliver really quickly. She may not have even known she in labor until it was too late. Just saying....we can't jump to conclusions when all the facts aren't there.

    if you are ready to go at any moment...why oh why would you step on a plane?? Good thinking lady...what is there was a medical emergency or the baby needed something immediately after birth. Holy cow this lady is a fool! The miracle is that nothing bad happened!!
