My nephew Mark came home from nightshift this morning, His wife Kelly was in the bath and shouted him she had started to give birth.
before the ambulance had got there, Mark had delivered the baby in the bath, It is a little boy they are calling him Liam, and he is a first brother to their two girls Kerris and Liberty!
What an end to a nightshift, and Im so proud of my nephew what an hero, Congratulations to them all, and my sister Tricia who has a 5th grandchild.

this brought a tear of joy to my eye as it reminded me of when i had my youngest six years ago and my husband had to deliver her on the sofa at home before medical help arrived

it will be a lovely tale for the future as my little girl loves telling everyone about her birth

love to them all xxxxx
