ENGLAND - A concerned mom who was stuck in traffic while trying not to give birth in her car was lucky enough to get some help from passing police officers.

According to The Guardian, while sitting in very heavy traffic on their way to the hospital, this mother-to-be and her partner managed to attract the attention of 3 passing police officers.

Officers Ian Sullivan, Holly Galvin and George Wigley pulled over to help the couple and quickly moved the woman to the back of their police car. They were only a short distance away from the hospital and arrived there within 2 minutes.

The baby being born had other plans however and before they even arrived at the hospital in Reading, England, the little one had arrived. 

Both mother and child were reported to be doing well after their unique birthing experience.
