Forward columnist Bethany Mandel gave birth to her third child on the side of the road in New Jersey on Friday morning.
Mandel and her husband Seth were in transit when labor ensued. The child, a boy, was delivered by Seth in a parking lot of an auto body shop in Sand Hills, N.J.
Thank you to my best midwife yet - Seth - for delivering our 9lb son in his car earlier this morning off of Route 1 in a gravel parking lot outside an auto body shop. Thank you to the South Brunswick PD and EMTs for getting us to the hospital after he was born. Thanks to God we are happy and healthy, and just a tiny bit shell shocked by a 45 minute birth.
On behalf of the Forward, we wish mazel tov to Bethany and the entire Mandel family.
