Woman Gives Birth In Petrol Station After Thinking She Needed The Toilet
| Last updated
A woman who thought she needed to use the toilet ended up giving birth in a petrol station just minutes later.
Kaitlyn Fullterton was out driving with her husband Sergio back in July when she felt the urge to go to the toilet, so as anybody would, she asked him to pull over.
Kaitlyn, who already knew she was pregnant, didn't think anything of her urge to use the toilet as it didn't feel anything out of the ordinary.
Sergio stopped at a rest stop in Beasley, Texas, and she headed inside to use the loo.
But just 10-minutes later, to her utter shock and surprise, she had given birth to their newborn son.
Speaking to ABC at the time, she said: "We got further along the road and I felt like I needed to start pushing, well I thought I needed to go to the bathroom.
"I kept on feeling like a water pressure... because whenever I stood up, my water broke."
In the petrol station toilet stall, Kaitlyn started to have contractions and knew the little guy was on his way.
Incredibly, Kaitlynn was able to give birth completely by herself.
After the newborn made his appearance, other women in the restroom asked Kaitlyn if she was OK, to which she requested that one of them go and tell Sergio she'd just given birth.
Sergio said: I was on my phone and 10 minutes later, a woman showed up and said, 'Hey, your wife just gave birth,' and I was like, 'What! Really?'"
He added: "I couldn't believe it."
Paramedics arrived and took Kaitlyn and the baby - who they named Callihan - to the hospital for a once over.
Thankfully, both Kaitlyn and Callihan are doing fine - and she regularly shares updates about him and his older brother on social media.
The couple created a TikTok video about their little boy's unusual entrance into the world, which has since been viewed almost 20 million times.
Fellow TikTok users have flooded Kaitlyn with compliments and congratulations - one person wrote: "Gosh this is amazing! Made me teary-eyed watching this.
"Mothers are naturally strong and brave for their babies. Congrats."
Another said: "I love how you are standing there, giggling in mommy bliss. Such a cool birth story."
While a third person commented: "Wow - that takes a lot of strength."
