Writer Asks Honda For a New Car After Backseat Birth | Luther Mankato Honda

New York writer, Beth Newell, 30, was getting ready to go to the hospital to deliver her baby girl with her husband and her doula, when mother nature decided to change her plans. Nature isn’t on a schedule, so Beth “quickly got into the car, but didn’t make it five minutes down the road” before Maeven, her sweet baby girl, made her grand debut.


Her doula, Silvie, was able to safely assist in her delivery, while her husband, Peter, called 911 for additional assistance. Beth had a great team of support who aided in the successful delivery of healthy baby Maeven. Beth and Maeven made it through alright, but we can’t say the same for the backseat of Beth’s Honda Fit.


Beth decided to tweet Honda, requesting a free car since her Fit had a bit of a mess and the tweet went absolutely viral. Beth’s tweet was retweeted more than 15,000 times and received more than 26,000 likes.


Beth received a lot of support from Twitter users and, later, Honda reached out to Beth, sending congratulations.


While Honda won’t be giving her a new car, they did offer a free cleaning and seat replacement for her new Honda Fit, according to Buzzfeed. Beth did say that Maeven is “healthy and happy and hungry, and clearly does what she wants when she wants to."


It sounds like Beth and Peter have a healthy, beautiful, Honda-loving baby in their arms. And we have to commend them on their vehicle choice. The Honda Fit seems to be a great fit for their new little family.
