Let’s get one thing straight here: Is there really anything Chick-fil-A can’t do??
You may know the basic overachievements like always being closed on Sundays because the founder Truett Cathy loved Jesus. Or that they never fail to leave us feeling like we graced them with our presence (it is actually their pleasure to serve you). Not to mention, for less than $10 and 10 minutes, you can get what I like to call, the Lord’s chicken.
And don’t even get me started on those waffle fries.
Chick-fil-A does it all. They have mommy car-side pick-up so you don’t have to lug four littles into a busy restaurant or wait in the drive-thru. They give back to the community, and y’all, their food is down-right crave-able.
But did you know Chick-fil-A also delivers babies?
A San Antonio Chick-fil-A made headlines this past month after a laboring Texas mom made the obvious choice of stopping by the chicken palace before welcoming her little nugget into the world! (See what I did there?)
As Falon ‘Maggie’ Griffin went into labor on July 17th, she and her husband Robert had a plan: load their daughters up in the car, meet their family friend at their favorite spot — Chick-fil-A — to hand the girls off, and head to the hospital to welcome their new baby girl.
Two of the three went according to plan.
“By the time we got to the restaurant , Maggie was in active labor and said she REALLY had to go to the bathroom. But it was after 10pm and Chick-Fil-A was closed,” Robert writes in a Facebook post, detailing the events of the night.
They knocked on the glass and the Chick-fil-A staff let Maggie in to use the restroom as Robert finished loading the kids into their friend’s car.
When he returned to find Maggie inside the restaurant, a manager informed Robert that his wife was in the bathroom and she was screaming.
A High-Risk Pregnancy
Maggie’s pregnancy had been considered high-risk for several reasons according to grantability.com. A combination of Maggie’s epileptic seizures and the fact that she’s 36 years old, had doctors on high alert.
“The delivery date was set for August 1st. The Griffins were told that there would be eight to ten doctors in the room to assist with the birth as well as residents from University Hospital to observe. It was planned that the baby would be rushed to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) following her birth where she would undergo testing, including an echocardiogram, to ensure her health was stable. Maggie was told that there would be no skin-to-skin contact following the birth until after all testing was complete.”
