"The birth of my daughter"

About: Scottish Ambulance Service / Emergency Ambulance

(as the patient),

I went into labour very quickly in May last year and we knew we wouldn't be able to get to hospital in time. My partner dialled 999 and an ambulance was on its way - they came through the door, just as my daughter arrived.

The person on the phone was directing my partner very well, he was a bit flustered to say the least! And I've never had to call an ambulance before and the two guys who arrived were brilliant, they delivered my daughter and took us all into hosital, I think they even stayed a bit longer to make sure we were ok.

I'd like them to know that my daughter, who is now 9 months old, is a gorgeous and very happy little girl and I can't thank them enough for their help in making sure she arrived safely.
