The craziest place to give birth I’ve ever heard is…
Have you heard of someone giving birth in a crazy place?
Whether you have a detailed birth plan or just plan to go with the flow, sometimes nature has other ideas and birth plans go out the window.
The BBC reported how a mum gave birth in an Uber when she was on a mad dash to make it to the hospital. So, we decided to ask our Instagram mums where’s the craziest place they’ve heard of someone giving birth.
Take a look at some of these, there are some crazy birth stories here.

Me and my mum had to help hold her trousers up and get her through the door where she ended up on her hands and knees while the midwives rushed around her.”
