In the wake of extensive flooding in Houston, one midwife had to get creative when traveling to an expectant mother: she floated her way there on an inflatable swan.
Faced with a flooded street, midwife Cathy Allen Rude managed to arrange a ride on her neighbor's swan float, which she and her equipment rode to a truck waiting to drive them the remaining few miles to the Katy Birth Center. Later that day, Rude helped the mother deliver a healthy baby boy.
Midwives will do anything to get to a birth! Riding a swan to get off my flooded street and make it to the birth center! Thanks,Celeste! You gave me a great ride!
