Alexis Swinney knows a thing or two about giving birth — she's done it four times before. However, when it came time for her to welcome baby #5, she was not prepared for how quickly her little girl was planning to enter the world.
On Sept. 5, Alexis and her husband, Dominique, dropped off their 7-year-old daughter at school before heading to their midwife with their three younger sons in tow.
Alexis had been experiencing labor pains the night before so she was sure she would be giving birth that day. The midwife discovered the baby would be coming even sooner, as the pregnant mama was already seven centimeters dilated.
