Leichhardt mayor Darcy Byrne delivered his baby girl at home while waiting for paramedics.
Councillor Byrne took to Facebook on Wednesday to share his exciting news…
“You won’t believe this. Last night my wife Rae went into labour so quickly that we didn’t have to time to get to the hospital. The delivery ward advised me to call an ambulance and while I was doing that, the baby started making her way out,” Mr Byrne wrote.
“I had to stay on the phone to the Ambulance operator who talked us through what to do. A few minutes later our daughter was born and then these wonderful Ambos arrived and took us all to hospital.
“Unbelievably, Sinead (new big sister) slept through the whole thing, in the next room.
“Gina, our lovely neighbour who came over to look after Sinead, ended up being witness to a birth (she looked like she needed a stiff drink afterwards).
“Mum and baby are doing well now. I’m very proud of them. What an effort from Rae!
“If we live a thousand years, we’ll never have a night like that again.”
“Sinead learning how to nurse her 1 day old baby sister from the excellent professionals at RPA midwifery ward. Cuteness overload!”
Congratulations to them all!
