No time for sewing, I’ve just delivered a baby!

It’s 4:55 here in the uk, on my first night shift (I’m a paramedic if you don’t know) and I’ve just delivers a baby!

It’s a boy!!

Think it’s number 21 for me, I’ve lost count!
Totally unrelated to sewing, but I had to tell someone!

I sew and play golf. I blog about my sewing as I don't think you'd want to read about my golf. It's bad enough watching it on telly! Contact me via email - Thimbers.blog@gmail.com


    • Thank you
      It’s just a bit scary for us out in the field, and such a relief when the midwife arrives, but usually the baby’s delivered by then as it’s the ones who don’t want to wait that we deliver.
      ….home time now 💤💤💤💤

  1. Oh well done! What a lovely start to the day! I can’t imagine how it feels to be part of such a momentous event!

  2. Thank you! I was excited, and had to share it with someone!
    Bedtime for me now, wonder what the next 2 night shifts have in store for me. 💤💤💤

  3. So cool! I am an EMT here in the states. Never had the opportunity myself to deliver a baby but some of our crew members have. Some of the most potential frightening and awesome calls all at once!

    • I’d done 4 years before I delivered my first, and the lady’s hubby was panicking like mad. Told him not to worry and that we do it all the time!! He believed me as I dealt with everything calmly and it went ok, but inside I was bricking it (?? English term). Afterwards I admitted the truth to him!
      Think that baby will be 15 now!! Makes me feel old!
      Bet you’ll have one on your next shift!! Good luck!!
      One of my best buddies at work is an EMT, and he goes to the states a lot as his partner lives there. Eventually he wants to move over too. Is it hard to get a job over there as an EMT? 😀✂️😀

      • You guys just shorten it we would say “shitting bricks” – lol! There are lots of paramedic/EMS jobs but unless you stick to the bigger cities the pay isn’t the best. Where I live in a small rural community we are still technically a volunteer service although we do get paid for every run we actually go on. Paid on Call is how we refer to that.
