Woman gives birth in pub so her husband can be there

A NEW mum gave birth in her local pub so that her husband could see his baby being born.  

Emma Bradford rushed down to the Bull’s Head as soon as her waters broke to ensure her partner Matt did not miss the miraculous event.

She said: “It’s lovely that Matt was able to see his baby being born. I mean, so did Steve the landlord, all the regulars and a group of girls on a hen night but it was nice that everyone cheered when it popped out.  

“I didn’t want to take the piss so I ordered a couple of beers and three bowls of warm water while I was in labour. 

“The bar towels came in handy and we even got to wet the baby’s head with a couple of proseccos and some cheese and onion crisps straight after. To be honest it was much better service than the hospital.” 

Husband Matt said: “That was the most incredible experience of my life. I won £10 on the triv machine and that’s never happened before.”

Pub landlord Steve Malley said: “I’m thinking of making this a regular thing, ‘Labour Wednesdays’. You get a free pint with every baby born and a discount on a carvery meal for twins.”
