According to Julie Anne Genter, she had not planned to cycle in labour while going to the hospital.

The US-born politician divulged that the contractions weren’t that bad when they left home on Sunday, November 28, at around 2am to go to the hospital.

'Big news! At 3.04am this morning, we welcomed the newest member of our family. I genuinely wasn’t planning to cycle in labour, but it did end up happening. My contractions weren’t that bad.
When we left at 2am to go to the hospital - though they were 2-3 min apart and picking up in intensity by the time we arrived 10 minutes later. And amazingly, now we have a healthy, happy little one sleeping, as is her dad," she said.
