A woman gave birth on the sidewalk (photos)
July 13, 2012
Bringing a baby into the world has to be a two-way street for modern mothers and fathers.
But one unfortunate couple found this to literally be the case when she was forced to give birth on the pavement in Guangzhou, capital of southeast China’s Guangdong Province.
The couple were on their way to hospital when the woman suddenly collapsed and was overcome with the urge to push.
When the baby began to crown with still a long way to go, they realised they had no choice but to deliver on the spot.
So, while they waited for the ambulance, the husband acted as midwife and delivered the nipper himself with a dose of encouragement from passers by who gathered to watch the spectacle unfold.
