Article summary: 9 month pregnant woman as a was in a multicar collision accident. While experiencing severe cramps and contractions, she got out and helped keep a lady trapped in an overturned car calm and stable until medics arrived. She went to the hospital where it was discovered the collision caused the baby to turn sideways in the womb. Thankfully, she was okay and gave birth to a healthy girl.

She was a firefighter and was on deskduty during the pregnancy.

Thanks. This is far less grim that what I expected.

Yeah, from the title I thought this was gonna be another one of those "capitalism is fucked, but here's a reframing to make the situation seem heartwarming" like all those stories about gofundme's being fulfilled for live saving medical procedures, teachers giving up their own PTO for another teacher who ran out because they had to miss so much work for chemo, or like some 8 year old selling lemonade to make money to give to homeless people. Thought this was gonna be like "9 months pregnant firefighter forced to be on the job fighting fires because her county doesn't allow any maternity leave".

Should read the article next time

Should do some research on when women should be taking maternity leave instead of working.


Saltiest_Seahorse t1_isqjs4l wrote

Reiterate my point: Maybe read the article. She wasn't working during the accident--she was in one of the crashed cars.


Unrigg3D t1_isqncfh wrote

I did, maybe you read it. It says she works desk duty still.

It says she was on desk duty during her pregnancy, they don’t say if she was still working or not.

After she gave birth, she left the child with the father and jogged to the gym to lift weights while listening to Burning Heart by Survivor.

Don't know why she needed to go to the gym. She had those massive badass ovaries she could bench press!

Plot twist. She gave birth four months later. The baby is healthy and everyone is very happy. Their nanny just arrived and the child is learning how to speak Tagalog.


Pedalos t1_isniul7 wrote

She was already 9 month pregnant, that must have been one huge baby

This is actually uplifting and wholesome. Glad to hear they're all doing well.

That's amazing after being involved in that accident that she chose to help others instead of focusing on herself. I can see why she's a firefighter.

We shouldn't normalize forcing pregnant women to work, give birth, and go to work immediately after.
