Wisconsin mom drives 3 hours in labor to meet returning soldier husband

Email

WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- Not even labor contractions could keep a Wisconsin woman from driving to meet her husband as the guardsman returned home from Iraq.

Johana Ortiz had gone into labor hours before her husband's plane landed at Camp Douglas, but she defied her doctors orders and made the nearly three-hour trip from Milwaukee.

She says she really wanted her husband to be there for the birth because he was in Iraq during her pregnancy.
