Woman gives birth to baby on side of busy motorway

Now this is going to make for one heck of a birth story!

A woman is recovering in hospital this morning after delivering a baby on the side of the M4 in Sydney’s west.

The dramatic scenes unfolded around 4.45pm yesterday, when police responded to reports a woman was giving birth in a car in the breakdown lane of the M4 Western Motorway Prospect.


It’s understood the couple were on their way to Blacktown hospital when their baby girl decided she just couldn’t wait any longer and decided to enter the world, in the most spontaneous way possible.

After calling triple zero, the infant’s father helped deliver his daughter before paramedics and police even arrived on scene.

The relieved mother and baby were then taken to Blacktown Hospital.

Thankfully, both the baby girl and mum are healthy and doing well!
