Earlier this week, a woman delivered her baby in a San Antonio, Texas, Chick-Fil-A bathroom, and to no one’s surprise, even though the restaurant was closed, employees even warmed up towels to keep the newborn warm.
In a Facebook post, Robert Griffin recalled that while on the way to the hospital for delivery, he and his wife Falon went to Chick-Fil-A to meet a friend outside who would pick up their daughters. Falon Griffin had to to use the restroom, and although it was nighttime and the Chick-Fil-A was closed, the employees allowed her in after she knocked on the door.
Robert Griffin then went to load his daughters into his friend’s car. When he returned to the restaurant to check on his wife, the employees told him that she had been screaming in the restroom. Robert Griffin discovered his wife straddling the toilet with the head of the baby beginning to crown.
“Sweetie, we are gonna have to do this right here, right now,” Robert recalled saying to his wife.
Robert claims he yelled to the manager of the Chick-Fil-A to call 911 and to bring clean towels.
“Maggie and I started delivering our baby,” Robert wrote. “When she got to the shoulders, I realized the chord [sic] was wrapped around her neck TWICE.”
Robert said he kept calm so he wouldn’t alarm his wife and told her to relax while he unwrapped the cord from the baby’s neck. The couple also claims they were using a speaker phone to communicate with first responders who were on their way. The Griffins even cut the cord while still in the bathroom. Robert wrote, “With two more strong pushes, and using my shirt for a towel, out came Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin.”
Robert shared a photo of the shirt he used: a Trump 2020 shirt.
The employees at Chick-Fil-A helped the couple by warming up towels to help keep the new baby girl warm.
“The hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician,” says Robert. “I think it’s pretty ironic that a proud conservative, Christian family would have a baby in a Chick-Fil-A, and wrapped in a Trump 2020 T-shirt!”
