Boyfriend Delivers Baby After Mum-To-Be Wakes Up In Labour

Tuesday October 29 2013

Sarah, Graeme and little Charlie Sarah, Graeme and little Charlie

WHEN a mum-to-be woke to find she was in labour and her son's head could be seen, it was down to her boyfriend to deliver him.

Sarah Pearson and Graeme Smith, of Bank Street, Worsbrough Common, were alerted to little Charlie's arrival when Sarah, 25, woke up and 'felt something weird'.

They had visited Barnsley Hospital hours earlier after Sarah's waters broke. She was told to return in 24 hours.

DJ Graeme, 22, said: "We had a couple of hours' sleep and then Sarah woke me. When I looked there was a head sticking out.

"I phoned the midwife, who told us to ring for an ambulance, and while we were waiting a woman on the phone was talking me through everything.

"The next thing we knew Charlie was out."

Im not disputing that there bad stories. But i have had 4 daughters there over the last 7 yrs n i can honestly say i couldnt have wished for better care or nicer midwives. It was all patient led and was always listened to x

Aww that's lovely, some babys like to take there time, and others like to be out in a flash. I've a nearly 6 year old boy and twins boy & Girl nearly 2 and BDGH was brilliant with them all. And my little boy twin was in hospital on Baby ward for 9 days after born. Some people are different its like there world has stopped. And others just take it easy and carry on. I had stitches due to forceps.was hard sometimes and sore but U just carry on with your bundle of joy in your arms. Midwives & nurses were brilliant :)

Had 2 awful experiences there in 94 & 96... Had two further babies in calderdale royal , Halifax and the difference is incredible! Wouldn't want my children having babies there unless things change !

I had my first daughter at DRI and they were incredible and so helpful, couldn't ask for better care and service, I then fell pregnant with twins, I lost them at 18 weeks but was booked in at BDGH and they were so uncaring, they sent me home twice once after the first twin had passed away still inside me and didn't do anything to even try to prevent the second one passing away, and then they sent me home a second time while I was in agony, I couldn't even walk, they then told me to go in 5 days after my second one had passed one, they forced me into "labour" but my babies were tiny, not even the size of the palm of my hand, they did not give me any time with them they just took them away, didn't even tell me the sexes so I couldn't even name them, they just shoved a form in my face asking what I wanted doing with their bodies, I would never have a baby there ever, DRI will always be my choice of labour ward.
