HUMAN MOM AND DOG MOM GO INTO LABOR AT SAME TIME
In Brooksville, Florida, the extreme weather caused by Hurricane Irma had an unusual – and life-changing – effect on a pregnant woman and her pregnant dog.
The woman was seven-and-a-half months pregnant when she arrived at a local middle school, which was a designated shelter, over the weekend with her Siberian husky mix named Chyanne.
Sure enough. When the atmospheric pressure from the storm changed, both the woman and Chyanne went into labor.
The woman was rushed to a hospital, where she gave birth. Both the mom and baby are doing well.
Chyanne also gave birth – at the middle school – and was helped through the ordeal by Principal Brent Gaustaed and volunteers from an animal services group.
Brent admitted that things at his school are stressful, but was happy about the moms giving birth, calling it "unique and kind of cool." (People)
