When Jes Hogan began experiencing contractions on July 18, 2017, she and her husband, Travis, drove to their local hospital in Manhattan, Kansas, to excitedly welcome their sixth child into the world.

Doctors then raced to assist the mum-of-six

Hogan spent the next few days walking around her neighborhood pool and doing small things around the house as she grew anxious about when the “real thing” might finally come.

“The pain wasn’t troubling me too badly,” Hogan wrote. “I kept telling myself I would just ‘know’ if this was the real thing.”

After spending the following Sunday painting her nails and watching Game of Thrones with her husband and her mother-in-law, Hogan began to feel stronger contractions but wasn’t sure if it meant the baby was ready since the pain wasn’t too discomforting.

About two hours after midnight as she laid in bed, Hogan felt a contraction leading up to the moments before her water broke.

About two hours after midnight as she laid in bed, Hogan felt a contraction leading up to the moments before her water broke.

“About an hour later, I woke to a strange, long contraction,” she said. “It wasn’t incredibly painful, but it caused me enough discomfort that I felt around in the dark for my husband and said ‘Travis, I think this is it.’ ”

Jesica didn’t even have time to put her shoes on and was rushed to the hospital by her calm husband Travis.

She said to Travis: “I told him Baby was almost there. I also said I couldn’t get out, I felt as if Baby was ready to emerge.

“That feeling made it nearly impossible to move.”

Travis helped Jesica walk into the emergency room between contractions as Tammy arrived to document the extraordinary birth.

But moments after she was inside, Jesica began giving birth in the corridor of the ER.

She said: “I made it just past the second set of automatic doors, into the next hall, which luckily was not carpeted like the one we had just stepped out of.

“I know at this point I said something to the effect of, ‘Oh God, he’s here.’

“I then started to take my pants off because I could feel my body pushing the baby’s head out.

“I reached down and could feel his head crowning with my hand. I looked at my husband and said, ‘Travis catch him!’

“Without any hesitation he did just that as I felt my body involuntarily pushing his head the rest of the way out.”

Nurses quickly arrived to help the unconventional birth, helping Jesica become comfortable on the floor.

She said: “With one more push as instructed by the nurse, and the only intentional push I gave, I felt the rest of his body come out.

“He arrived on the floor just inside the entrance of the emergency room at 3:38 am.

“Less than 25 minutes from the time my water broke at home, and only a few moments after we stepped inside the hospital.”

Jesica says that despite being “incredibly bruised” following the speedy birth, Max is doing fine.

It was my craziest birth, but also, the most perfect

“It was not at all what I had planned, but it ended without any intervention, with a healthy baby, and amazing support people by our sides.

“It was beautiful and I’ll forever love every memory of it.”
