Son phoned me this morning at 6.30 his partner had just started labour, off me and granddad go (they live only 200 yards down the road) plan is hubby babysits while I take them to the hospital.
When I got there she was having a contraction, followed about a min later by another one!
As the hospital is about 20 mins away I said to son you had better phone an ambulance.
Ambulance car arrives with a lovely paramedic, has a quick look and says "we will see who gets here first ambulance or midwife and take it from there" - wrong baby decides he is coming first on the sofa in the living room
