TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas — It's a girl!
A healthy baby girl was welcomed into the world on March 3 and, according to the Austin-Travis County EMS, she was born at a gas station.
"We got a call a little after 5:30," said Katie McMiff, one of the medics who arrived on scene. "It's pretty amazing."
"Not our average call, no, absolutely not," said Brandon McGarrh, the other medic from ATCEMS. "And we are in a very public place, so our initial thing was to get her out of that and into our ambulance."
The woman gave birth to her daughter inside the ambulance because medics didn't feel they had time to transport her to the hospital. They were right.
"This baby girl was not going to wait, so we set up for delivery right there on scene," said McMiff. "The little girl was not ready or willing to wait, she was ready to be born."
This was McMiff's first birth in the field, while her partner, McGarrh, has done one before.
The mom and daughter were transported to a local hospital and are doing well.
Congratulations to the family!
