PASADENA, Texas (AP) — A multitasking mother in labor has given birth at a Houston-area school where she stopped to register her 4-year-old son while headed to a hospital.
Vanessa DeLeon of Pasadena and her newborn son were doing well when they were transported Thursday to Bayshore Medical Center. A message left with the hospital wasn't immediately returned Friday.
DeLeon says her contractions began earlier Thursday but she was intent on first getting to Fisher Elementary School to register her son, Alexis, for prekindergarten.
A school nurse and a Pasadena police officer helped DeLeon deliver the baby at the campus clinic. The boy named Geovanni weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces.
DeLeon managed to complete the pre-K registration before giving birth to her fourth son.
