    I'm German and would like to share some additional facts on the name:
    - Strahl is German and means beam/ray.
    - Axel is also pretty common in Germany, which makes the whole name very german.
    - There is a famous german actor named Axel Prahl, which every german hearing the name will think about immediately.

    crazy amazing story!! reminds me of when my cousin and his wife were expecting their 3rd kid a few years ago. she was going into labor fast and they made it to the hospital just in time for her to lay on the side walk outside as my cousin ran inside to get some help. by the time he came back she was sat on the sidewalk holding their kid and had delivered all by herself. not exactly as planned but at least they were next to the hospital for any aftercare.
    applauding all the mothers and parents that give birth to us in typical and less than typical situations!!!

    OMG! 74 hrs of hard labor! yep, that's what happened with me birthing my son. I promised myself that I would never guilt him with that. It's been tempting. But now that I'm old, I tell you can see. Congrats! Your wife can guilt your son, telling him he should be happy she wore sweat pants...instead of, I dunno, a mini skirt?.. I guess...I'll let you handle the details.

    cute story. I have had 4 real quick too. when the contractions start, you get right next to the hospital AND call the anesthesiologist and your MD. been there done that. but knew better. not in the lobby. great nice story. funny thing is, when you tell the staff at 2 cm baby's coming fast and hard they ignore you and a half hour later you're at 9 cm. they always tell you "it will be hours". no, not always. some of the babies just can't wait!

    Cool story, but she better not EVER tell a woman who needed a c-section that she should’ve just done yoga, eat nutritious foods, and meditate for another 37 hours. Women with these quick ass births love acting like it was something they did.

    I almost had my 3rd baby in a taxi on the way to hospital, he broke the speed limit for us and got us there with literally 3 minutes. We arrived at 8.20 am. My son was born 8.23am in the side room of the maternity hispital. Lucky coz his older sister was born at home on the couch as she came far too quickly haha! Enjoy it as theyre usually livewires when they arrive fast

      Firefighters are also paramedics. Basically, in any emergency, you call 911, tell the operator what the emergency is and they send the appropriate agency.
