A photographer has captured the amazing moment a father delivered his baby in the front seat of the car.
Photographer, Stephanie Knowles was following US couple, Noah and Lauren Strunk to the hospital last week when their bundle of joy decided he couldn’t wait any longer.
Sharing the incredible images on the Jaiden Photography Facebook page, Knowles wrote: "At 12:21am an AMAZING mother and INCREDIBLE father delivered their precious baby in the front seat of their car!!!!!
“I am still in awe of their strength, their sweet baby could not wait another minute to come into this world and his father delivered him within minutes of putting his car in park.
“No words can describe how amazing it was to watch this miracle, more to come as I was able to capture it all!!!! Birth photographers dream, what a wild night it was. So in love with this family!!!”
On the way to the hospital, Lauren said she knew the baby was coming.
“By about the third contraction, we were on Belfort and I said it was a pushing contraction, and I said ‘Noah you have to catch this baby it's coming,’” Lauren told Action News Jax.
“I threw it in park," said husband, Noah, "opened the car door and put her in a better position and about two minutes later and two contractions, we had this guy on her belly."
As for Knowles, she was trying to decide if she should help or take the picture.
In an other image shared on Facebook, Knowles said the baby “was born so fast that his dad had to literally catch him after his shoulders emerged.
“What is so powerful to me is his mother, out of instinct, grabbed him by the arm after she delivered him.”
As for the baby, who the parents named Parker, “an ode to his unconventional birthplace," he’s now at home and doing fine.
