Here is the article (granted this was years ago - but yeah quite an odd ball thing) on the woman giving birth.
BOSTON -- The Department of Social Services is investigating after a woman gave birth to a boy yesterday morning on a subway train in Boston, transit police said.
Passengers said the mother quietly declined their assistance while she was in labor on the full rush-hour train, said Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Lt. Gary Fredericks. He met the woman and other MBTA subway officers outside the JFK stop on the Red Line after train commuters used cell phones to call for help. The woman had just gotten off the train with the baby when officers arrived, he said.
She did not want help and ran off, grabbing a newspaper from a vendor to wrap her new child. Police and the woman argued before she finally agreed to receive medical assistance.
The mother -- whom Fredericks identified as 43-year-old Joyce Judge -- and the baby were taken in an ambulance to Boston Medical Center. Police said both were doing well.
Social Services spokeswoman Denise Monteiro said police contacted the agency because of the woman's conduct.
Judge, who was living in a Braintree motel, also is the mother of two other children, who were found there yesterday by police, Monteiro said.
The children, a 15-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy, are now in DSS custody.
