As a first time mom, I never dreamed things would progress so fast. I awoke at 2am with back pain. At 5am we were told to head to the birthing center. My husband packed up our Flex and we pulled out of the garage at 5:32am. I was in the back seat with the baby’s carseat. We were approximately 30 minutes from our destination. At 5:43am, my water broke. My husband calmly continued to drive and field calls from the midwife and doula. At 5:59 am, less than a mile from the hospital, I gave birth to our son sitting in the backseat of our Flex. Our friends and family would always comment how roomy the Flex is. Now, we joke that it is so roomy, you can give birth in it!
