Unexpected Delivery: Baby Born In Front Seat Of Car


LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. - A Lawrence County couple welcomed a son into the world Wednesday, but it was not where the parents had expected the birth to take place.

"It was horrible," said Edward Frost, father.

Noah Aleczander's first few minutes in the world were anything but calm.

"We were going to a birthing center to have a water birth, he decided to have car birth," said Katrina Frost, mother.

Noah's parents hope their baby's sense of timing will improve as he gets older. He was due March 15th, and Wednesday morning Noah's mother had quite the experience.

"I was dreaming I was in labor, but I was really in labor," said Katrina.

A few minutes later the family was in the car, and that was when Katrina's water broke.

"I said oh my water just broke, called 911 in the parking lot," said Katrina.

At the New Prospect Market on Highway 64, Katrina Frost sat in the front seat and pushed with husband Edward and her young son coaching nearby.

"My 12-year-old son was on the phone with 911 and said he was ripping off his shoelace to tie the umbilical chord," said Katrina

The parents said the birth came and went so quickly.

"It was all kind of a blur after that," said Katrina.

Noah Aleczander made his first sounds in his parent's car at the corner market. 

"He'll probably have memorized it by the time he's 2 because everyone will be telling him, this is how you were born," said Katrina.

The delivery was an event not just for Noah to remember. Noah's unexpected arrival may have been just what this family needed. A job loss and financial problems had strained the parents' marriage.

"This is first time had to be together and be a team on our own," said Katrina. "It was something kind of bound us back together," she continued. "Here we are safe and sound."

After the birth an ambulance took the 7 lbs. and 2 oz. baby and his family to a nearby hospital where they are resting and doing well.
