Woman Gives Birth At Starbucks In Colorado Springs
woman who left a Starbucks in Colorado Springs may have had a tall order, but it had nothing to do with coffee.
Police Sgt. Mark Stevens says the 42-year-old woman, whose name was not released, walked into a Starbucks near the Garden of the Gods and gave birth about noon Friday in the bathroom.
I'm not sure what to think here, was this woman trying to pretend that she was not pregnant, so that she could ultimitly get away with disposing this little one? Or was she just simply not wanting to draw attention to herself?Be Kind to yourself, you are worth it!

How strange she didn't scream/cry/ask for help. I'd wonder if she was attempting to cover up the birth as well. For now I'll keep my fingers crossed this is truly a wanted child and he/she has the greatest mother on the planet.

I hope for the best in this too.
On a lighter note........many college kids would love to say that they were born in Starbucks, literally born in Starbucks.[/I]

This is so odd. Maybe she was in shock? How does someone walk into a bathroom, come out with (what I assume is a child with a hanging umbilical cord) and not notice! Where's the placenta. Plus mom would still be bleeding right?
She didn't tell anyone.
Stevens says someone noticed blood in the bathroom, and Colorado Springs Fire Department Lt. James Eddy says someone who followed the woman out of the store directed paramedics to her.

Don't ask me why but the oddest thing about that is this woman was 42 yrs old.
Surely she knew she was pregnant? I wouldn't expect such a reaction out of a 42 yr old woman KWIM?
15? yes I can see it. 20? maybe I could see it but 42? What's up with her I wonder?

the only thing I can think of that would make sense as to why she didn't ask for help is if she was in shock
~ and that's a stretch ~

The woman walked four blocks with the child before emergency workers caught up with her. Stevens said the mother and baby were in good condition.
But no way in hello I could've walked 4 blocks. The only way I can see she did that was to be in shock...JMHO.

I've delivered five of my sons naturally, and with four of them, I was home within 12 hours. (The last one, I begged the doctor to let me spend the night so I could get some sleep! LOL!) I ususally was up and at 'em almost immediately-- but I didn't walk four blocks either!
However, when reading about American Indian women who gave birth during the times their tribes were moving on to different areas, I learned that these awesome women dropped out of the hike to deliver, picked up their babies and CAUGHT UP with the tribe! Now that's some kind of awesome, isn't it?
