Open Post: Hosted By The Woman Who Voted While In Labor

November 8, 2016 / Posted by:

Either take the goddamn motherfuckin’ picture or put a pillow under me to catch the baby that’s about to drop out” is probably what that Colorado woman is thinking.

HuffPost, ABC 13 and the Daily Camera report that Soshy Adelstein of Boulder, CO expected her baby to arrive today, Election Day. But on Friday morning, Soshy’s baby girl decided that she needed a change of scenery and made her way out of there. Soshy started to go into labor at 1:30am, but she wasn’t going to let anything, even a baby coming out of her body, stop her from voting. So before she and her husband, Max Brandel, shuffled off to the hospital, they stopped in to the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 11:00am to drop off their ballots.

After officially casting their votes, they took a quick picture and then ran off to the hospital. Max told HuffPo that they voted for Hillary Clinton and they voted early because they didn’t know how long they’d be tied up with their new baby friend (SPOILER ALERT FOR MAX: You’ll be tied up for the next 18 years).

“We had no idea how long we’d be in the hospital, or what condition we’d be in to vote after our baby was born. Considering the gravity of this election, and how much we disagree with everything Donald Trump represents, it wasn’t a question to go vote. It was a priority.”

Soshy and Max could’ve taken a few more pictures, because their baby didn’t show up until the next morning at 12:59. They named her Kenna Bone Brandel. No, they named her Bella Rose Brandel. Rosey for short.

Baby Rosey must not have gotten news reports while in the womb (lucky her). Because if she did, she probably would’ve waited until how the election went before deciding she wants to join us. I mean, she could’ve hung out in her mom’s uterus for another 4 years.
