BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A Virginia woman is experiencing the happiness and joy of motherhood after she delivered her baby in an unusual place.

Robin Posey of Bedford says she realized she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital Wednesday morning, when she went into labor at this Sheetz gas station in New London.

She told her boyfriend to dial 911, and help arrived just in time.

“It wasn’t just a few minutes later and then the ambulance showed up.  They put me in the ambulance and here she is! Just a minute or so later, ” Posey said.

Posey was later taken to the hospital. She said baby Willow is healthy and that the little girl weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces at birth.
