Baby’s quick exit

HIGHWAY BABY: Izaiah was a little impatient and was born next to the highway.

Not many people can say they have “National Highway One” listed as their place of birth on their birth certificate, but Izaiah Marich-Warren will be able to do just that when he grows up.

Izaiah was in a hurry to get out and his mother and grandmother knew they would not make it to the hospital in time.

Karissa Marich saw the doctor and met the midwife at the hospital on the morning of May 4.

She went home to rest for the day and her water broke at about 6pm.

Ms Marich’s mother Karina Welsh was with her throughout the day and rushed to get her to the car.
