10 Unexpected Places to Give Birth

Neatorama's own Stacy Conradt has a new article up at Mental Floss detailing ten unusual places that women have given birth unexpectedly. Here's a sample:

5. In a tree. In 2000, about a million people in Mozambique were forced from their homes when floodwaters ravaged the country. Or make that a million and one. A Sophia Pedro lived in a treetop for four days, waiting for her rescue and hoping that it would come before her baby did. Rescue did come, but it was moments too late – just minutes after the woman gave birth in the treetop, medics descended from a helicopter to retrieve them and cut the umbilical cord. Sophia and her daughter both recovered just fine.
