‘First ever dashcam birth’: Couple accidentally records the dramatic moment their baby was born in the backseat of their car

  •  Pregnant Kara Lee gave birth to her baby in outside Nottingham hospital 
  •  Kara could not make it inside as the baby’s head was starting to crown
  •  Kara gave birth to healthy 8lbs 4oz Kaitlyn with help of widwife who dashed out

Dramatic footage shows what could be the first birth ever captured on a Dashcam in Britain.

Heavily pregnant Kara Lee, 28, was being rushed to hospital by husband Lee, 32, when she suddenly got the urge to push ten minutes after her waters broke.

The couple arrived at Nottingham City hospital car park but it was too late to get Kara inside forcing her to give birth to her baby in the back seat.

The couple’s dashcam, which was facing the back window,  captured the audio but not the birth. 

On the video, the midwife, who rushed out to help after it became clear that she couldn’t get inside is heard saying: ‘All right sweet, lets see what happens with the next contraction.’

Kara Lee, 28, can be heard in the footage screaming as she is helped by the midwife. She didn’t remember the dashcam was switched on until later on

Kara can then be heard moaning and screaming, while the midwife then tells a colleague: ‘No we’re not going to have enough time to go in, breathe, breathe..let the baby out.’

Moments later the midwife is heard laughing and says: ‘Hello baby, have we got a towel.’

An exhausted Kara asks her: ‘Is she all right?’

The midwife then replies: ‘She’s fine – she’s just thinking about having a cry. Well done Kara, we’ll get you a wheelchair, when you’re ready we will transfer you in.’

No time: Heavily pregnant Kara Lee, 28, was being rushed to hospital by husband Lee, 32, when she suddenly got the urge to push

After several agonising screams, baby Kaitlyn, who weighed 8lbs 4oz, is heard crying before Kara is taken into the hospital by a team of midwives. 

Kara, who has three other sons with Lee, of Daybrook, in Nottingham, said: ‘We completely forgot about the dashcam still being switched on.

‘You can’t see anything because it’s pointed out the back window but you can hear all you need to hear.

‘We were there for about an hour and I felt a few cramps at the time but they were quite far apart.

‘When we got back home – the cramps were every five minutes and I knew it was time.

‘As I got into the car my water broke an as we pulled into the car park I couldn’t move – I felt her head coming out.

‘We set off to the hospital at around 3pm and my water broke as soon as I got in the car.

‘I knew I was going to be able to make into the hospital as I felt the baby’s head – I even asked if I should get in the boot.

‘Even though we live close by it was horrible because we had to drive over speed bumps.

‘It was about ten minutes from my water breaking to me giving birth in the car park.

‘You never think it will happen to you- that’s why it was a massive shock to us.

‘It was a really quick birth – two pushes and she was out.

‘I just wanted it over really – there was around about six midwives and a doctor around me.

‘I was discharged at around 8pm and was able to take the baby home with us.

‘After having three boys I am really happy to now have a girl.

‘The boys are great with her – they’ve been great through the whole process..’

Proud dad Stewart, an electrician, added: ‘Kara just said she wasn’t going to make it inside the hospital and said she could feel the head coming out.

‘I had a look myself and I felt it too.

‘The midwives were amazing – I can’t thank them enough.

Happy and healthy: Kara with her husband Lee and their new baby. Kara is already the mother of three boys, who are ‘great with her’

‘The midwives even managed to put a couple of screens around the car so we could have some privacy.

‘As people walked past they heard the screams so must have thought ‘what’s going on over there?’

‘We tried to get Kara out of the car and into a wheelchair after the birth but it was hard as the umbilical cord was still attached.’
