Yup! I just read a story about a woman who gave birth to a baby right in front of a Primark store in Birmingham city center!!!!!!!!!!! I mean birthing a child is always a glorious moment and of course we NEVER have control over the when or where (natural delivery not c-sections here, keep up. hehe)
I was happy for her especially as the reports are that baby and mother are doing fine, but I was also mortified on her behalf. I mean, she had her baby in the middle of the CITY CENTER!! She's a hero, I'm telling you, because I know curiosity would have gotten the better of most of the shoppers and shop keepers. I had a near miss with my first, I was 30 weeks preggers and right in the middle of Mothercare when I started having contractions. O.O. I tried to leave the store quietly, but the thing hooked me ehn, chai. Next thing I know, in between the pains and my panting, the store had brought me a chair, got me a glass of water, called the mall security and called for an ambulance. I. Was. So. Embarrassed. I was wheeled out with people staring in wonder. It turned out to be a false alarm although I spent the night in the hospital.
Thankfully I got to the hospital in time for both of my babies but you see I also almost had the second before I got to the hospital. In fact the cabbie that took me to the hospital deliberately slowed down so that he could witness the "cab-birth and be in the news"!!!! Say what??
