Dad captures wife delivering baby outside hospital on GoPro

The actual delivery starts at 5:00 into the video.

It’s child birth like you’ve never seen before.  A Texas man captured every detail of his son’s birth — including his over-the-speed-limit drive to the hospital and his wife’s delivery right outside the hospital doors — on a GoPro camera.

As they pulled up to the Houston hospital, Kristin Dickerson knew it was time.  The baby simply wasn’t going to wait.

“His head is out. I’m not kidding,” she screamed with the camera recording. “Oh God. Oh God.”

“Sit down. Sit down,” her husband, Troy, urged.

“I can’t sit down,” Kristin said.

“You have to sit down. You have to sit down so I can catch him,” Troy told her.

That’s exactly what happened. The video is censored there — you don’t see the baby coming out but you hear the audio as it happens. The video picks back up shortly after little Truett is born.

He’s the couple’s third son, The Houston Chronicle reports.

Kristin is a child birth educator, by the way.
