California Woman Gives Birth on Front Lawn
It’s many mothers-to-be’s worst fears come true: a Fullerton, Calif., woman gave birth in the most unlikely of places on Tuesday ? her front lawn.
Thirty six year old Jessica Higgins was reportedly on her way home from the shopping mall when she went into labor and gave birth to her daughter Mary Claire, six weeks prior to her due date. Her two-year-old son was sleeping in the backseat of the car.
Higgins dialed 911 when she got home, but when police arrived she had already given birth and was standing in the driveway holding the newborn. The baby was 5 lbs. 11 oz.
