"ON Robert Mugabe Avenue behind the Government Office Park the baby came."
These were the words of Cazwill Pieters, who delivered his baby daughter on the way to the hospital on Tuesday morning.
According to Pieters, they left Rehoboth, where they live, at 05h00 after his wife, Hillary, started getting contractions at 03h00.
The baby was only expected to arrive on September 28.
When they reached Windhoek, Hillary's contractions were getting more frequent.
"Then I put on my hazard lights and started driving faster," Pieters told The Namibian.
But it was not fast enough, and the baby girl was born in the car while her father was driving.
After the baby was born, Pieters held her and continued driving to the Medi-Clinic hospital where the medical staff came to cut the umbilical cord in the car.
The name of the baby is Wernice Alexis. Mother and baby are both doing well.
The couple have an older daughter, Chainice (5).
