A resourceful, millennial mom from Nashville, TN tweeted the story of how she gave birth alone in a hotel room in Turkey, teaching herself via YouTube videos. Tia Freeman's Twitter stream has since gone viral, though she claims she doesn't quite understand what's so special about her delivery.

Well, it's special for a few reasons. For one, she delivered the baby alone. For two, she delivered the baby alone in a foreign country. For three, she delivered the baby alone in a foreign country and then had to leave the country with a brand new baby.

Sound crazy? Take her word for it...

Freeman had no idea she was pregnant, and she'd already booked this solo vacation in Germany via Turkey. When she found out she was having a baby, she wasn't about to cancel her plans.

Everything was going great, barring the fact that the airline didn't offer any vegetarian options. Freeman was forced to eat some salmon hoping she wouldn't get sick... but, eventually, her stomach started bothering her.

She survived the plane ride and lands in Istanbul, but she was still feeling way off and the customs line was out of control.

That's when she realized: She was in labor.

She made it back to her hotel with little time to spare, and she did what any millennial would do: She YouTubed how to give birth.

And then, casually, she had a water birth in her hotel bathroom tub without a hitch.

Of course, the story doesn't end there. She still needed to cut the placenta and clean up the aftermath...

Mind you, Freeman still had a connection to catch to Germany the next day, and she didn't know how to carry a newborn baby out of the airport, so she went to the airport to inquire. After much speculation, they helped her out.

That's about when the press showed up...

She was escorted to a hospital to make sure she and her newborn son were healthy. Which they were.

And then she flew home where more press were waiting for her since her story went totally, justifiably viral.

Only in 2018 would a woman single-handedly give birth via YouTube and then recap the whole story with memes on Twitter. Now Freeman is asking for help with funds via Cash App because "babies are expensive."
