Jo Stephens, 28 from West Cornwall, had planned a home birth. But when she went into labour a midwife wasn’t immediately available. However, the baby was on it’s way!
So her husband Marc, 28, googled ‘how to deliver a baby’ and watched some clips on you tube before delivering their son Gabriel.
“When I rang the midwife to come out she said they were all so busy at the hospital,” explains Marc. “The next thing I know, Jo is coming through the bedroom doorway on all fours. I looked down and the baby’s head was showing!”
Mother and baby were taken to hospital shortly after the birth but were back home the same day.
