Mother gives birth to ‘Tesla baby’ while vehicle drives on autopilot

.

One Pennsylvania baby was born with a lot of drive.

The “Tesla baby,” as nurses call her, was born in Philadelphia while her mother was in a Tesla that was driving itself on the Tesla Autopilot system.

Yiran Sherry was getting her son Rafa ready for school at roughly 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 9 when her water broke. She told her husband, Keating, to take Rafa to school and then come back and get her.


“I knew,” Sherry told the Philadelphia Inquirer regarding her contractions late on Sept. 8. “I said to Keating, ‘Today’s the day, but I don’t think it’s happening anytime soon.'”

Keating Sherry was driving a Tesla, which comes with Autopilot, allowing him to focus on delivering his daughter as his wife was in labor. His wife’s contractions were a minute apart as they sat in rush-hour traffic.

“Should I push or should I hold?” Yiran Sherry said she thought before deciding to push.

The newborn was already out by the time the two reached the hospital. Nurses immediately rushed to the scene, where they cut the umbilical cord right in the car, the report said.

Though the Sherrys named their daughter Maeve, they said they considered naming the girl Tess in reference to her birthplace.

“Baby Maeve and Yiran are doing fantastic,” Keating Sherry told People on Thursday.
