‘[It was] chaotic. People shouted: “She will have a baby! Help her! Oh my God! What should we do? This is not a hospital. She shouldn’t be here!”
“So I just asked everyone to calm down and then I calmed my mother down. She was screaming trying to prevent the baby from coming and I told her not to because you would have very strong contractions and the baby would fly out.”

The little girl was born after just a couple of pushes in the back seat of a car, but unfortunately Evelyn, who has been a nurse for over 20 years and helped deliver hundreds of babies early in her career, said the baby was never born. breathed and began to turn gray.

Evelyn explained, “We wrapped her up and I started rubbing her chest and I said, ‘Come on baby, breathe, breathe, breathe, come on. Take a breath, baby.”
“I just rubbed the baby’s chest and she screamed. I was so happy.’
