Birth of the Rock Andrew Dunwoody Hotel

Victoya Venice thought her son was due in two months and gave birth while on a business trip.

DUNWOODY, Ga. — A woman who was on a business trip to Georgia says her son’s birth wasn’t an April Fool’s joke. She recounts the rapid delivery that happened on Friday when she was using the toilet at her stay at the Dunwoody Hotel.

Vicotya Venice thought she knew what to expect as she awaited the birth of her second child.

Venice initially thought she had a bug in her stomach and didn’t think the discomfort was her baby.

“I had just come home from urgent care with my daughter. And she had a bug in her stomach,” she said. “By the time I realized it was a baby and not poo, it was just too late.”

Venice was using the bathroom when she gave birth, she said.

She called her mother and emergency services after it happened and was taken to Northside Hospital, just minutes from where she was staying.

Venice said doctors were just as surprised as she was when they learned of her delivery.

“They actually thought my due date was May 15 because I was so short. So it was kind of a conflict with them. They thought I wasn’t that long,” he said. she stated.

A day later mom and baby were back at the hotel but only one was resting.

Venice is a graphic designer and social media manager. She was finishing up a few projects as baby Rocky Andrew enjoyed his first day alongside his sister. Her new bundle of joy was safely tucked away next to Venice.

The mother said she plans to take some time off when she completes her ongoing projects. She also plans to return to Atlanta to be closer to her mother.

The birth of baby Rocky changed things for Venice who said she initially considered putting the baby up for adoption. The circumstances surrounding her birth changed that for her, she says.

“I feel even more connected to him,” she said.

Venis gazed at his son and daughter fondly, holding his newborn baby to him.

“No, you’re mine, I’ll take care of you,” she told her child. “If I could literally birth you on my own, I think I could take care of you.”

The mother said that to mark the occasion, her special delivery has an equally special name.

“Rocky is a nickname given to my grandfather,” she said. “And I just thought that was kind of so fitting because it felt like you had a rough start, but you’re going to be strong and you’re a fighter.”
