Sometimes when the baby says it’s time, it’s time.

A California woman had the entire miracle of childbirth captured by a doorbell camera after she was forced to deliver the baby on her front lawn.

Emily Johnson says she and her husband weren’t in rush to get to the hospital after she started having contractions a week before her due date. Then things changed quickly.

“Then the contractions went from three minutes to two minutes to one minute in a matter of 20 to 30 minutes, and we are like, ‘Oh, we got to get into the car; we have to go,'” Johnson said.

Johnson made it as far as her car door when she realized she wasn’t going to make the 5 minute drive to the hospital.

“I’m just like, ‘I’m going to get on the grass,'” she recalled. “‘I’m going to be here. This is my spot.'”

With her mother’s assistance, Johnson delivered the baby just before paramedics showed up.

Once realizing the entire ordeal was accidentally caught on camera, Johnson laughed it off.

“I’m just thankful that I was facing in that direction because otherwise, I don’t think we’d be able to share the video footage with anybody,” Johnson said.
