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.

Therese Charvet thought her ferry ride to Seattle Thursday afternoon was going to be routine, but, well, it was anything but, she tells our community news partner Inside Bainbridge.
When a call for medical assistance crackled over the ferry intercom, Charvet, a retired midwife, thought it was probably someone having a heart attack.
But it was the impending birth of baby Lucy, who was delivered on the ferry with the help of Charvet, a delivery and labor nurse and two EMTs.
Said Charvet of the experience,
“It was totally a gift — a thrilling gift to be part of . . . I haven’t delivered a baby in maybe 15 years, but I’ve delivered hundreds and it all came right back to me.”
