Most parents have stories about when their babies were born.

But an expecting mama in Lancaster never expected how her bundle of joy would come into this world.

By the time her husband got home from work, Amber Gilbert’s contractions had grown more painful.

Gilbert said her husband Ben Groff “made a smart comment,” saying, “‘I’m not no doctor but those don’t look like they feel good.’ And I’m like, ‘No, they don’t.'”

When Groff pulled up in the car, Amber said, “Out of nowhere, I felt a trickle down my leg. I looked at him and said, ‘My water broke,’ and he’s like, ‘Are you serious?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah.'”

It was showtime. But the hospital was 30 minutes away.

“I got to the red light outside of the building and I started pushing. I was like, ‘This is terrible,'” she said.

Amber and Ben did make it to the hospital. But they didn’t exactly make it inside.

“He brought out a wheelchair and I told him I wasn’t getting in it because I was already pushing,” she said.

That’s when nurse Kelsey Mensch entered the picture.

“When I got down there, the (emergency department) nurse pushed me in and was like, ‘Deal with this. You do this.’ I was like, ‘OK,'” Mensch said.

After multiple attempts to get Amber on a stretcher, a decision was made.

“‘No, no. We’ll just have a baby in the car,'” Mensch said she recalled saying. “And they were like, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Yes, we can.'”

And they did.

At 5:55 p.m., David was born. Healthy and happy, without a clue in the world just how special he is.

“I was texting my boss. He said, ‘Don’t pass out.’ I said, ‘Oh, she’s in the car pushing,’ and then he came out and I’m like, ‘Oh he’s born,'” new dad Ben said.

Amber said: “I didn’t even know how to feel. I was actually a little shaky because of the adrenaline.”
