Indiana woman, Mariah Grove, delivers baby alone after being trapped in snowstorm

Both mother and baby are doing well as an Indiana woman is making headlines when she was forced to deliver her child alone, unable to get to a hospital due to the blizzard.

Evangeline Beatrix Grove was born 20 inches long and weighed in at 7.5 pounds, delivered at home, just by her mother.

“Her due date was not until the 21st. She wanted to see this blizzard. She didn’t want to miss out,” mother Mariah Grove told RTV6.

“Once the water broke and I realized this was it, all fear went away. I realized it wasn’t going to help me and that we would be a team and do this together. And we did it,” Grove said.

Grove planned to have a home birth, just one not this early or in this manner.

RTV6 detail how late Sunday night, Grove contacted the midwives and then her mother, but nobody could get to her in time. All by herself, her contractions continued until 2 a.m. and then her water broke.

Grove knew she would have to go at it alone and the bedroom had to become the delivery room. 

“The second she came out, she was crying. She was pink. She’s already nursed several times. I had no tearing. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome,” Grove said.

 Both mother and baby are doing well.
