Another day, another baby trying to make its debut on I-5

For the second day in a row, a woman has gone into labor on northbound Interstate 5 in the Seattle area during the morning commute.

The commute was slowed just after 8 a.m. while medics tended to a 33-year-old woman on I-5 at Albro Place, said State Patrol Trooper Chris Webb.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen it two times in two days,” said Webb.

Seattle Fire Department medics took the woman to Swedish Medical Center in time to have her baby, her fourth.

On Wednesday, another medic crew raced another mother from I-5 to Swedish while she was also in the advanced stages of labor.

In that case, the 22-year-old woman made it to the hospital in time to have her baby, according to the Tukwila Fire Department.
