The weeks close to due dates are trying times for a pregnant woman because they begin to experience contractions and never know when the little one decides to pop out.

That is why it is essential for women to know and understand the signs of labor so that they can be well-prepared. Here are some signs of labor to look out for:
1. An increase in your contractions;
2. Nausea or loose stool;
3. Dilated cervix;

4. Your water breaks.
However, with all these signs, it can happen that a mother goes into labor before getting to the hospital, just like Rudy Napier.
Michael Anthony and his Rudy were on their way to the hospital when the unexpected happened. The happy couple already had three kids, and their fourth one was on the way.
They were hoping to make it to the hospital before the little one came, but that wasn’t the case. Rudy soon went into labor in the car while their three kids watched on in terror.
While she was in pain, screaming, the younger girls were crying as they were confused about what was happening. The first son was taking a video of the entire experience while their father drove and tried to deliver the baby.
The baby girl, who they named Jolee Lavergne Addison, was born before they made it to the hospital.
The couple’s story gained popularity on social media platforms as the video of the birth was shared on Facebook. The new father captioned the post:
“I’ve done A LOT of “things” in the front seat of my vehicles. But delivering a baby while driving AND with 3 crying kids in the back seat Can I get a MVP or something!"
Luckily, the hospital staff immediately came to their aid when they arrived. Both mother and child are doing great!
The video has been viewed over 9 million times, and people can’t help but praise the mother and her family for their courage.
