The couple pulled over in the parking lot of the Brighton-area Costco Wholesale store and contacted Livingston County EMS.

Emergency responders arrived just in time to assist with the delivery, which fire officials said was successful and without complications.

The mother and baby were transported the rest of the way to the hospital in an ambulance. Green Oak Fire Deputy Chief Tracy Chamberlain said the family was doing well after the delivery.

An Ohio woman gave birth in her own driveway in September 2022. Alyson Michael of Westfield Township said she went into active labor and her husband was preparing to drive her to the hospital when she realized the baby's arrival was imminent.

The family called 911 and an ambulance arrived at the home. Michael was loaded into the back of the vehicle, but gave birth before leaving the driveway.
