- A woman has delivered a bouncing baby boy on a train in London
- The woman who is yet to be identified went into labour on a Southeastern train going to London Bridge
An African woman has successfully delivered a bouncing baby boy on a train at the busy London Bridge station.
She delivered the baby on Thursday, April 27, around 4:30pm on the train.
According to the information assistant at the Southeastern railway, Dean Parsons, after it was discovered that the lady was about to deliver her baby, an announcement was made for doctors and nurses to attend to her.
Parsons said: "I work in the control room but was doing work on the platform when a lady came running to my colleague and said there’s a lady on the train which had just pulled in having contractions. She collapsed on a bench on the platform. We called for the first aid officer from the station and put out an announcement for doctors and nurses".
He expressed that the baby boy was delivered by an off-duty doctor before paramedics arrived on the scene.
The information officer further expressed that: “It’s always amazing how quickly doctors and nurses will always respond to announcements. They are fabulous. And it was about 3pm, they were just passing and they may have been on their way home from a long shift. Luckily with the new station being built we had a medical room. We managed to get her in a wheelchair, I was saying to her ‘try not to push yet.”
"At first the woman was in pain, she had tears in her eyes, the baby was a week early. But the photo taken shows her beaming"
NAIJ.com discovered a post by the London Bridge’s Twitter account expressing that its team did a good job in assisting the delivery.
“Our team did a marvelous job helping to deliver a baby boy into the world. Mother and baby doing great"
