"I didn't have a clue what to do, I was all over the place. The paramedic told me to pack a bag but for some reason I was looking for clothes in the fridge. I still can't explain the emotions I was going through at that moment," David added.

Stacey, the mother of the baby said, "It all happened so quickly. One minute I was on the toilet in pain with stomach cramps then the next I was on the floor giving birth. It wasn't really until I saw the head coming out that I knew I was pregnant. It was a quick birth and David woke up just minutes after I had delivered her. People have asked me what emotions I was going through at the time but it was all just a blur, it wasn't until after that I thought my life had just turned round."
