Rare Reflex: Pregnant Woman’s Body Hit The Ejector Seat For Baby Delivery
Recently a pregnant Philadelphia woman gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Good and normal. From all reports, mom and baby are totally healthy. Cool story Steve, what’s the point? Well, this baby didn’t just work its way out like most other normal births. Have you ever joked about labor, delivery doctors, and nurses dressing as baseball catchers? For this birth, it would have been a reasonable request. A rare reflex caused the pregnant woman’s body to birth to this child in 40 seconds. Is that even possible? Science says yes it is. It’s called Fetal Ejector Seat Syndrome. I’m kidding, but I’m not far off from the real egghead name for it. The rare reflex is actually called the Ferguson Reflex or fetal ejection reflex (see! I wasn’t totally joking.)
The Ferguson reflex is caused when a mother gets a large hit of oxytocin that triggers contractions and fires up the rest of the body to push that baby out. It’s as if the oxytocin hit tells the body to FIRE EVERYTHING. Cianna Gonzalez said she was in labor for 3 hours but never had to push. The baby just came out. According to an article from the NY Post, regarding Cianna’s Ferguson reflex, other mothers who this happened to compared it to an oncoming sneeze. No way to stop it. Sounds like a bad Pringles commercial.
While we’re at it… 4 best ejector seat scenes in movies… Go!
5. Top Gun: Maverick – Nobody died when ejecting this time.
4. Tomorrow Never Dies – Pierce Brosnan’s bond was getting choked from behind in this scene. He manages to get the jet under another jet, hit the ejector button sending the baddie through the bottom of the other plane before escaping the explosion.
2. Top Gun – Pivotal part of the film that allowed them to flesh out the story of in the sequel. The sequel was awesome btw.
1. Goldeneye – The GOAT. The slam cuts, the fake human rag doll being shot through the roof. It has it all.
I bet you didn’t expect that turn, did you?
