In labor on Labor Day

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Labor Day means a day off to many, but it can also mean a day in labor. Gina Stalboerger spent the morning in labor, giving birth to a baby girl. She says "it is all worth it."

Labor Day started over a century ago to give a break to workers. Mom's, however, never seem to receive that break. They put up with yelling, screaming, and giving birth, in this case, even on a national day off. Stalboerger's baby girl, who is yet-to-be-named, was born 10:31 Labor Day morning at the Rochester Methodist Hospital.

Nurses say the number of deliveries on Labor Day was no less than any other day.
