Woman gives birth in Magazine St. donut shop

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A woman who walked into a donut shop on Magazine Street left with much more than just coffee and a pastry.

Emergency dispatchers in New Orleans received a call Thursday shortly after 10 a.m. of a woman in active labor at a donut store in the 2200 block of Magazine Street near Jackson Avenue.

When EMS arrived a couple of minutes later, the baby was already born. EMS spokeswoman Liz Belcher says the pregnant woman gave birth inside the restroom of the shop, assisted by patrons of the restaurant. EMS personnel helped cut the unbilical cord, then transported the mother and child to an area hospital.

Belcher says the mother was surprised that she had gone into labor since she had not yet reached her due date. 

Belcher says the mother gave birth to a girl, and both mother and baby are healthy and happy.
