Labor of Love

Shaw, now 35, and husband Cesar Sousa hit the road the day before the storm struck, making their way to a hotel in southern Alabama before stopping for the night. Shaw was pregnant, due on Sept. 2. She intended to have natural childbirth. A friend put her in touch with a midwife near Huntsville, Ala., just in case the baby came sooner than expected. Which, of course, it did.
