Woman gives birth to baby at convenience store
GREENFIELD (AP) — A pregnant woman’s quick stop at a central Iowa convenience store while on the way to the hospital didn’t go as planned.
Amanda Teas, who works at Casey’s General Store in Greenfield, tells KCCI Abbie Hinrichs stopped in at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday to use the restroom.
Hinrichs told Teas she was in labor and was headed for the Creston hospital.
Teas checked on her about four minutes later and found the baby had arrived. She says Hinrichs “was calm as could be.” Teas ran outside to tell Henrich’s mother, husband and son, who were in a car.
Medics soon arrived, taking Henrich and the baby to the Adair County Hospital.
The family says Addison Nicole Hinrichs weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces. She and her mother are doing fine.
