Woman Gives Birth Alone On The Subway At 1:30 A.M.

I am proud of myself when I kill a spider without bursting into tears and shrieking. So I can’t imagine what it must be like to give birth on a subway car. Alone. In the middle of the night. But that’s exactly what Wanda Dueno, 24, of Philadelphia did two nights ago. While visiting family in New York City and heading to her sister’s house at 1:30a.m., Dueno started going into labor.

She was sitting by herself in a J train subway car, so she hit the emergency intercom. But by the time a conductor came to her aid, she had already given birth to little 7 lb 2 oz. Libasse Dueno.

First of all, EW. I don’t want to breathe inside a subway car, let alone have my vagina touch the surface of one. Second of all, that is completely badass and I am in awe of this woman. I would say she should get the keys to the city, but I think she really just deserves free taxi rides for life. [New York Post]
