In a remarkable turn of events, a woman delivered her baby while traveling in a car at 60mph, as her partner desperately tried to reach a hospital in Cumbria. Chiara Musetti, 28, was only minutes away from Furness General Hospital when her daughter, Siena, unexpectedly arrived as they navigated a roundabout. This is reported by SSP.

Throughout the challenging 45-minute journey from their Windermere home, the couple had to repeatedly halt their car to assess whether they could safely continue through the flooded roads. Siena, weighing 8lbs, made her entrance into the world at 3.30am on February 24th during this dramatic journey.

Recalling the extraordinary moment, Ms. Musetti described the urgency she felt as her contractions intensified within minutes of reaching the hospital's vicinity. "We were about 10 minutes from the hospital when my waters broke, and I knew the birth was imminent. Just five minutes later, her head started to emerge," she shared.

Ms. Musetti narrated how she had to quickly adjust her seating position, remove her seatbelt, and lower her leggings as the baby progressed. "She suddenly popped out, and I had to catch her in my arms," she said humorously.

Needless to say, chaos unfolded once baby Siena made her swift arrival, two and a half hours after contractions began. Ms. Musetti recounted the exuberant emotions the couple experienced during the exceptional birth: "We tried to stay composed during the journey, but when she started coming out, we couldn't help but scream."

Upon their arrival at the hospital, Mr. Spence, who had previously removed his footwear to assess the flooded areas, rushed in to alert the medical staff of the extraordinary circumstances. The midwives were astonished when they heard that the baby had been born in a moving car. The couple even jokingly claimed to have done the midwives' job for them.

For observation purposes, Ms. Musetti was swiftly taken into the hospital on a wheelchair, where she delivered the placenta and stayed for twelve hours of monitoring before being discharged. "Siena is thriving now and is an incredibly calm baby, despite her eventful entrance into the world," Ms. Musetti chuckled.

Mr. Spence described the birth of his daughter as an intense ordeal, with multiple voices screaming in the car upon her arrival. "I was far from composed. It was the most intense experience of my life, but witnessing Siena made it all worth it," he expressed with heartfelt gratification.

The couple had previously encountered an unexpected birth experience with their first child, who was born prematurely while they were attending a wedding in Manchester. Thus, they found themselves unfazed by the eventful arrival of their second child.
