US freeze: 'Blizzard baby' born at home without midwife

A woman from Indianapolis has delivered her first baby without the help of midwives during the ongoing snowstorm in the US.

Mariah Grove, who was planning a home birth, contacted midwives and her mother, but because of icy conditions, neither were able to get to her home in time to help.

Ms Grove gave birth without any problems. "We couldn't have asked for a better outcome," she said.

RTV6's Jack Rinehart reported the story from the US.
