Woman delivers her baby by self during hurricane in Miami

A woman in Miami delivered her own baby on Sunday after a dispatcher talked her through the process when Hurricane Irma prevented paramedics from reaching the new mother.

The woman was in her home in the Little Haiti neighborhood when she went into labor and called 911 for help, the city of Miami said in a tweet on Sunday. Paramedics weren’t able to reach the expectant mother due to hurricane-force winds and dangerous conditions as Irma approached southern Florida.
“We weren't able to respond. So she delivered the placenta, also. Dispatch told her how to tie it off. She's stable at home,” Assistant Fire Chief Eloy Garcia told the Miami Herald. "We made contact with the assistant medical director here. Talked things through."
Doctors at Jackson Health System went on the phone and coached the woman through the birth.
