Midwife Comes Floating Down The Flooded Streets Of Houston With The Stork By Her Side.

In the wake of widespread flooding in Houston, one midwife had to get creative when traveling to an expectant mother: she floated her way there on a swan. It was inflatable of course, but it was still a swan!

Faced with a flooded street, Midwife Cathy Rude managed to arrange a ride on her neighbor’s bird float, which she and her equipment road to a truck waiting to drive them the remaining few miles. Later that day, Rude helped the mother deliver a healthy baby boy.

The role of a midwife is therefore diverse, flexible, and must be responsive to the unique needs of individual women and their families. Snow, Hale or even a Hurricane wouldn’t have stopped this hero from achieving her duties.
