Woman Juggles Making Dinner, Delivering Baby
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, with congratulations to Africa McCalop and her mom.
Africa McCalop went into labor on Thanksgiving. The baby girl arrived two weeks early, and there was no time to get to the hospital. So the grandmother Patricia McCalop conducted a home delivery, but that's not the amazing part. Patricia McCalop kept running back and forth between her daughter in labor and the kitchen. According to the Boston Herald, she refused to let the Thanksgiving turkey burn.
