Tesla’s are known for their wide array of capabilities. From an effective daily driver to a top-of-the-line performance automobile, the electric vehicles built in Northern California at Tesla’s Fremont Factory are becoming some of the most popular cars in the world. However, one New Jersey family saw their all-electric car become a delivery room as a pregnant woman was forced to deliver a newborn child in the front seat of the family’s Tesla with the help of her husband.
Allison Goldfarb and her husband Blake were leaving their home in North Caldwell, New Jersey, and heading to Manhattan, where the Goldfarbs would welcome their second child. Knowing a January due date would likely be complicated due to the ongoing pandemic and expected winter weather, Allison was stressed about the possibility of having some issues when she went into labor.
“I had said to [my doctor] throughout my pregnancy, ‘Oh my goodness. I’m due in January,’” Goldfarb told People. “What if I go into labor in a snowstorm and I’m stuck on the GW Bridge?’” Goldfarb was right because her pregnancy came to a halt after she was forced to deliver the child near the George Washington Bridge on January 19th. It was a first for the both of them, but they welcomed a healthy baby boy named Jordan Harris to the world.
Both of the Goldfarbs were COVID-19 positive when the family expected to deliver their second child. Blake was not going to originally be allowed in the delivery room, according to a statement she shared with the New York City Fire Department. After a doctor’s appointment resulted in Allison being sent home, her contractions began just 15 minutes after arriving at their North Caldwell, New Jersey home, giving the school teacher an indication that Jordan was on his way.
