Boom! Norwood pastor’s wife delivers baby in driveway!

We were just sent the Enquirer article recounting the incredible adventure Rev. Timothy Brooks, pastor of Norwood Church of the Nazarene, and his wife Charryse had Sunday morning welcoming their first born into world, specifically on their driveway. The couple went to the hospital at 2:00 a.m. when Mrs. Brooks complained of labor pains but were sent home after hospital workers diagnosed false labor.

Oh, how wrong they were. Shortly after she arrived home, the labor pains became “excruciating.“ Mackenzie Nichole Brooks, not due to arrive until February 22, decided going back to the hospital unborn was a bad idea. Instead, she made her debut on the couple’s driveway, and then the three of them happily rode together to the hospital, umbilical cord still intact.

Congratulations to Rev. and Mrs. Brooks on the birth of their most remarkable baby girl!
