Video of mom of four, Alexis Swinney giving birth to her 5th child in the passenger seat of a moving car, right in front of her kids, who watched on in shock as she delivered the baby with her bare hands while screaming in pain has gone viral.
In shocking video footage of the birth, Alexis, 25, is seen kneeling on the passenger seat of the car facing the rear window as her husband, Dominique drives the family to a hospital in Texas, all while filming his wife.
“Can you wait, like, two minutes?” he asks the mom-of-5, who is seen crouching on the seat naked from the waist down, while writhing in pain and begging her husband to help her.
“What do I do?” she asks between screams, making it clear that the couple’s baby is on the way whether they like it or not.
As Dominique urges her to hold on, Alexis shares her fears for the baby’s health during the unconventional delivery.
“I don’t know if she can breathe,” she says while reaching her hands in between her legs. “I don’t know what is happening.”

Just a few seconds after asking her husband to pull over, a groaning Alexis then gives a final push and delivers her crying daughter.
Alexis can be seen pulling out her baby girl before cradling her in her arms, the child’s umbilical cord still visibly attached to her mom who was still breathing heavily while smiling with relief as her child lets out a wail.
“Oh, she had the baby,” her husband says. “Oh my gosh. Oh my goodness, we just delivered a baby in the car. Oh my God.”
While posting the video on the Swinney family’s Instagram page, the mom opened up about her one-of-a-kind birth story.
“There was something beyond special, about getting to deliver my own baby,” she wrote.
“No doctors or nurses, no lights, or busy people, no one interrupting a moment that should be the most special moments for families as they bring life into the world. The pain was there, but the joy and peace that followed in those minutes we got to spend alone with our sweet girl was more rewarding then anything I could have asked for,” she explained.
“I honestly think that God allowed me to deliver safely in the car, instead of making it to the hospital, because He knew that my desire for a birth that was without interruption and full of hormones between baby and I, that desire was so deep. And something that the hospital just couldn’t provide for me.”

“They don’t understand that I just experienced something unrivaled to anything I could have imagined,'”she said. “I witnessed my body take over and a baby be born into my hands.”
“My body is not swollen, and I have no tears. I had my husband and children around me, and for 5 minutes, we embraced everything that happened without any interruption.”
“Our family has preferred a unique chaos,” she added. “It was crazy. But it was Amazing.”
A day after posting the incredible birth video, Alexis took to Instagram Stories to post some photos of the newest addition to their family.
