Walmart said they will be giving them gift cards and other baby related items to congratulate them on their unique birth experience.

Good job.  You've just buggered up Walmart parking for years to come.

It wasn't giving birth in a Wal-Mart parking lot, but my wife made me stop at Best Buy to pick up her new iPhone before telling me she was already in labor (with our second). She wanted something to play with while in the hospital.

I'd happily pay extra to allow these types the rights to breed AND vote, if you promise to prevent the 1%ers (and above) from breeding or voting.

You must have read a much more detailed article.

Because I thought maybe- just maybe- she could have been having false contractions often and thought it was no big deal and then POOF! The baby came super fast. Or maybe the baby just came super fast because weird sh*t happens. AND I totally missed the part of the article where it talks about their financial history.

But I would love a link to whatever you read.

It is impossible to give birth without a $10k hospital stay. I'm calling shenanigans.

My second child cost me only about $13.00...the cost for food for my wife when she was in a navy hospital in 1990.

Guys. This thread has been open for more than 5 minutes and not one of you has said "clown car". You're falling down on the job.

The headline fails by making it look like the man abandoned his wife to shop while she was already in labor.  I think attention should instead be focused on how it was that a woman went from fine to in-labor to having given birth in only a few minutes.

Sounds like socialized healthcare, so clearly there is no way this happened in the USA or the world would have ended.

I believe there was another story a while back where a woman gave birth in her car in a Walmart parking lot. IIRC, her mother was driving her, but insisted on stopping there because she wanted to get a few disposable cameras.

There was another one that's kinda OT, but far more entertaining in an I'm-going-to-hell-for-laughing kind of way. A couple (in Mexico, I think?) walked to their local clinic because the woman was in labor. Some dumbass nurse glanced at her and said "you're not far along enough" (WRONG) and "if you really want something to do, go walk some more" (*facepalm*). She had the baby on the clinic's lawn.

The funny part was that some news source covered the story, but instead of, y'know, actually getting footage and/or interviews, they mocked the whole thing up with The Sims.

You're both making the assumption that the woman knew she was pregnant, and no I don't understand how a woman could not know, but apparently it happens.  This article is lacking details, and thankfully lacking pictures of the family.

I'm sorry to hurt your feelings but my son was born in the navy hospital in San Diego and that was the cost of his birth... and the world has not ended,  my marriage has but the world is still spinning.

You might be onto something there however what I find unlikely is the idea that Wal-Mart would give them anything for free. If that was the local manager's decision you better believe his arse is fired on Monday.

Meh, fourth kid can come fast. I only pushed three times for my second, and he was a ten pound beasty. (Late, full head of hair.). I've seen plenty of women who experience little in the way of labor pains. It can happen.

Perhaps you missed that it was in the navy. Every thing is free for the poor people we send to kill other country's poor people.

Last time I was in labor, I ate my dinner (queso-covered chicken fried steak at Lulu's Café) and made hubby take me to Wal-Mart so I could buy some receiving blankets I suddenly needed.  Baby wasn't born until 3AM, and this was all around 6-7PM.

Could well be the gal in the article had a much-faster-than-normal birth.  I've known a couple of women go from 12+ hours of labor with one kid to >4 hours with the next.  Obviously, I can see making a couple of stops if you think you have hours to go yet.

No, pure sarcasm .... I live in the USA and as a consumer and advocate for change I'm pretty familiar with healthcare policy and costs here. The VA has a socialized healthcare system similar to that in many European countries, and it works. It's a strong counter to arguments against.

I figured this was precipitous labor. It could have happened even faster if her three daughters were close in age and not all that old, like under 10.

First babies take their sweet time. Second babies, if had within a small amount of time (2 or 3 years-ish), often come pretty fast. (My second was 3h 45m. I counted.) Thirds tend to be wild cards, especially if the age gap between 2 and 3 is larger, and if fourths happen within a certain amount of time, well... 10 minutes later, ta-da! ("You shouldn't have pushed!" "I DIDN'T.")

There's also that a mom of three is going to usually be really busy and put her discomfort on the back burner, and the universe thinks Braxton-Hicks contractions are a hilarious joke.

And then there's that gem where the strongest muscle in a human body is the uterus, which during childbirth, can exert downward force 100 times as strong as gravity. Also equal to the force of a fully extended longbow, which makes for some pretty funny mental images.
