According to Ashley Harrington, she first began experiencing contractions on Saturday, January 15, around three in the morning.
Ashley and her husband, Sean, were under the impression that they still had quite a sufficient amount of time to make it to the hospital. However, in the space of only a few hours, everything shifted.
“At 5:45 in the morning, everything changed in an instant. I told them the baby is going to come any second a nd he came into the world at 5:50 in the morning. It happened in a blink of an eye,” Ashley remarked.
When Sean and his companions realized that they would not be able to make it to the hospital, Sean contacted 911 for assistance, and the operator who answered the call was able to assist him.
The pair shared their thoughts, saying, “We sort of stared at one other and thought, ‘wow, that actually occurred.’
