A woman has told how she was left in a state of shock after giving birth to her daughter in the passenger seat of a car while stuck in traffic.

Deshai Fudd, 23, from Atlanta, Georgia, started feeling contractions in the morning of November 29 and when her husband Loston returned from work they decided to head to hospital.

However, within 10 minutes of driving, Deshai’s waters broke and she ended up delivering her newborn somewhere along the I-75 north. 

Recounting the chain of events, the now mom-of-three told Fox 5 News: ‘I was like oh my gosh my water just broke and then something like exploded in my pants… a second later she was in my pants… I didn’t even have time to have an emotion it was just total shock.’

In a bid to speed up the drive to hospital Loston, 25, frantically flagged down a police car so it could put its lights on and fast-track them through the traffic. 

While they were making their way to  the hospital, Deshai said she made sure that her baby was warm and breathing okay. 

She explained to NeedToKnow.Online: ‘She didn’t cry so we were concerned until I felt her move.

‘My husband was yelling and asking if she was okay and asking what he should do.

‘I told him to keep driving and get us to the hospital! I was panicking at first but I just wanted to reassure my husband that she was okay and to just keep driving so we could to the hospital as soon as possible.’

When they got to the hospital, the Fudds were greeted by around 15 medical staff.
