Baby Born At Maryland Amtrak Station


A Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, woman unexpectedly gave birth to a baby girl at an Amtrak station after she went into labor while on the train.

Aberdeen, Maryland, police were called to the Bel Air Avenue station after Sheera Lowe went into labor. Officers Gibbons and Testerman were met by Paramedic Keith Williams and EMT Judy Hinch, who began prepping for an emergency delivery.

Lowe gave birth to her daughter, Trinity Christina Stokes, soon after, reported Baltimore Sun.

"So touched by the birth of baby Trinity; Officer Gibbons, a father of two himself visited the hospital," Aberdeen police wrote in a statement.

"According to Mrs. Lowe, the child's middle name is the same as a passenger who provided comfort to her throughout her labor and childbirth. Mrs. Lowe was unable to obtain the passenger's complete information, only that she was from New York," reports Fox Baltimore.

Lowe was riding from North Caorlina, where her husband moved in order to find work after his 2013 discharge from the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

Lowe and their 4-year-old daughter were preparing to move south to be with him at the time of the delivery.

"I've definitely tried to be strong and supported him throughout everything, and [we're] doing the best that we can," she said. She and her husband, Michael Stokes, married eight years ago.
