A new YouTube video has captured the incredible moment a woman gives birth in the front seat of her car on the way to the hospital.

The woman was forced to deliver her baby herself as she travelled towards the Bay Area Birth Center in Pasadena, Texas, with her husband, who also managed to catch the moment on film.

The four minute video opens with the caption, “We’ve been driving for 45 mins. already”.

The father can be heard asking the whether soon-to-be new mum would like him to pull the car over, but she insists that he should keep driving.

She can be heard saying, “Oh my God, I’m scared I’m going to have it right here.”

After several strong contractions, her husband can be seen hurriedly helping her remove her seatbelt and trousers as the baby’s head begins to emerge.

In just a few short pushes, she delivers a little boy onto the car seat, quickly scooping him up onto her lap to check that his airways are clear.

Noticeably in shock following her new baby’s speedy arrival, the mum marvels at “beautiful” son and asks her husband, “What should I do? I don’t know what to do.”

“Love him,” he partner quips in response, before wondering whether they will still need to pay to use the birth centre.

The baby, later named Josiah Benjamin Pettijohn, weighed in at a healthy 10lbs. He is the third child for the couple, who already have two daughters aged one and two years.
