First Baby Born Post Hurricane Harvey

TEMPLE, Texas - A woman began experiencing labor pains inside of her home just south of Houston on Monday, August 28. Emergency officials told her she would have to travel to find a hospital that could accommodate her.

She managed to evacuate the impacted area and drove up to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple, Texas where hours after arriving, she delivered her first child. 

Her fiancé, the child’s father, was not able to evacuate from his location until Wednesday evening. He missed his daughter’s birth but was reunited with them hours ago. The mother also learned that after she evacuated, her home was one of the many overcome by the flooding.
