Leanne Parrett, a paranormal investigator from Bristol, went into labour on the very day that she was due to be induced.
Leanne’s waters broke on Thursday 11th October so Leanne and her husband, Sam, decided to make their way to the maternity unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
However, whilst making their way to the hospital, Leanne, who was 11 days overdue, suddenly felt the urge to push just as they were about to join the M5 motorway.
Sam found the nearest lay-by and immediately pulled over before calling 999 and asking for the ambulance service.
But only seconds later, Sam found himself actually delivering his newborn son in the back seat of their car with the help and guidance of the 999 emergency operations centre call staff.
Around ten minutes after giving birth to a baby boy, paramedics arrived at the scene and made sure that both mother and baby (and dad) were all well.
Once mother and baby had been checked over by the paramedics, Leanne took a quick picture and said:
‘How can I thank three amazing Bristol paramedics that rushed to our aid after I gave birth on the backseat of our car last night?
‘This is a picture of Scott, and Amy and Lloyd were the paramedics that arrived by ambulance!’
In response to Leanne’s tweet, Paramedic Scott said:
‘Congratulations again from everyone @swasft & well done to all 3 of you for being amazing and doing such a great job and letting us share your special moment in welcoming your healthy new son into the world.
‘I know you completed my shift feeling so happy! Keep in touch x Scott’.
It is great now that, thanks to social media, both paramedics and patients who share moments such as this one can now keep in contact if they so wish.
The team here at Emergency Services News and Emergency Services Humour wish Leanne, Sam and their baby boy all the very best.

We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
