ANN ABROR, Mich. (AP) -- A woman who didn't expect to give birth until mid-July has delivered a healthy baby girl along a Michigan roadway with help from her husband and coaching from 911.

AnnArbor.com reports Nicole Culwell of Howell was heading to St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor Hospital on Monday with her husband, Matthew, when she realized she wouldn't make it in time. So her husband pulled over along U.S. 23 in Ann Arbor.

The Culwells were about 10 minutes from the hospital when they stopped, and a 911 dispatcher talked them through the delivery before emergency crews arrived.

Matthew Culwell says it was a "huge relief" to hear the cries of his new daughter. Dispatcher Carol Lellis tells WDIV-TV that hearing the cry was a relief to her as well.
