Shunned at ER, dad delivers baby at home

UPI News Service, 10/17/2007 

Anthony and Elizabeth Jones didn't plan on a home delivery but she gave birth at home after being turned away from a Wales hospital, twice.

Elizabeth, 24, went into labor about 7 a.m., Wednesday, but the couple said they were told to go home when they went to the maternity ward of Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.

"They told us they were shut because they were full and to go have a cup of coffee and come back," Anthony Jones told the South Wales Echo. "We only live five minutes up the road, so we went home."

The couple came back to the hospital at 11 a.m. and a midwife sent them home a second time. Elizabeth Jones gave birth to baby Emily just over an hour later.

With his eldest daughter getting instructions on the phone, Anthony Jones, 39, a coach driver, delivered the healthy 6-pound eight-ounce girl.

Paramedics arrived as the baby's head emerged, and Jones was doing such a good job he completed the delivery.

"It was so quick I didn't have time to think about it," he said. "I was shocked."
