Multitasking mom delivers while at school registration

PASADENA, Texas – A mother in the advanced stages of labor thought she had just enough time to stop off and register her 4-year-old son at a Houston-area school en route to the hospital. But she was mistaken.

A school nurse and police officer helped Vanessa DeLeon deliver her baby Thursday at the campus clinic of Fisher Elementary School in Pasadena. The boy, named Geovanni, weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces.

DeLeon said her contractions began earlier Thursday but she was intent on registering her son Alexis for prekindergarten at Fisher before giving birth to her fourth child.

The mother and her newborn were doing well when they were later transferred to Bayshore Medical Center.

Alexis was successfully registered.
