“My labor wasn’t that difficult, but Emma did not want to come out.  Because we were an hour from the hospital, Marie and Geetal, my midwives, decided we should head towards the hospital. I was in the backseat with Geetal, Marie was in the front seat and Rosey was driving. My sister Gail was behind us in a truck with Andy Leo and John Calagna. We got to the bottom of Kapaia hill less than a quarter of a mile from the hospital and Emma started to crown.  We pulled over behind the La Luna restaurant and I had her at the backseat of the car. It was a turquoise Datsun. I remember looking down at her, and she looked like the Krishna baby, it was the most incredible thing. I could have been anywhere, it did not matter I was in the backseat of a car, yet I was really in my own birthing world.”

 

 
“Rosey turned around and he held out a baseball glove like he was going to catch her. He was a big joker. So, they were holding Emma while I was birthing the placenta and right at that moment the police drove up.  Somebody called and said that we were dumping a baby in the restaurant dumpster. We showed them Emma and when we showed the placenta, they got in their police car and they left. We turned around and went home. That is Emma’s birthing story. Emma that is for you.” — Teri Green
