DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A baby girl just couldn't wait until her parents got to the hospital.

A Des Moines mom delivered her own baby sitting upright in a van while her and her husband were speeding down Interstate 80.

"I could just feel her. She was coming out and there was no stopping her," New Mother Jessika Thurman said. "I just had to open up my sweatpants and just scooped her out."

Thurman

says her and her husband took off for the hospital as soon as she woke up from a nap with contractions.

Fortunately, doctors say the little girl is 100 percent healthy.
