An American woman is making national headlines for delivering her healthy baby boy while pulled over on the side of a highway.

According to a report by www.ksl.com, Mariah Ostler was traveling  at 120 km/h in the fast lane of when her water broke.

“I knew the baby was coming and it doesn’t help to panic. So, I just stayed calm and said, ‘Well, if I deliver it on my own then I deliver it on my own. If somebody gets here, somebody gets here. The baby is here. There’s not much more I can do about it,'” she said Sunday from her room at Brigham City Hospital while holding her newborn son.

“I was hoping that I would make it. But then my water broke and I called dispatch because once my water breaks … there’s the baby. There’s no time once that happens,” she said.

“I was in the fast lane. I was trying to get over to the slow lane so I could pull over to the side, but cars wouldn’t let me over. It doesn’t matter if you have your blinker on or not,” she joked.

Patrol trooper Josh Carr and Willard Police Chief Jean raced to the side of the road where Ostler’s car was parked.

By the time they reached her, she was dilated to a 10 and couldn’t move.
