A student paramedic cuddles the first ever bouncing baby boy she has helped deliver since signing up to the job.

Emma Bainbridge from Hemel Hempstead cuddles Teddy Parrish, who she helped deliver in an office car park on Thursday, May 21.

Pictured with mum Danielle Barnett, above, the 6lb 5oz tot made an early appearance as Miss Barnett was being rushed to Watford General Hospital by her partner Luke Parrish.

The couple had to pull over in Hunton Bridge and call an ambulance.

Emma and her colleague senior emergency medical technician Geoff Rogers turned up to safely deliver Teddy at 8.05am, who is now setting in at home in Rumballs Road, Hemel Hempstead.

Danielle, 30, who also has two daughters, said: “I wasn’t scared – I was quite calm actually!”

Emma, who is based with Geoff in Watford, said: “It’s lovely to see both Danielle and Teddy again, looking so well. “This was my first birth and its certainly one I will never forget.

“Nothing quite prepares you in training for the real thing.

“Both parents and Grandma remained calm and were brilliant, considering the situation.

“It was really nice to find out how baby Teddy is doing.”
