  • Wow sounds like a scene out of a movie – hubby getting stuck in traffic etc.


  • So cute congratulations


  • Interesting story.


  • Well here is another interesting birth story. Congrats! (-:


  • Well, this is a story for the 21st. With visual evidence to go with it!!


  • Dedicated to the job up until the last minute ???? Shame that the dad wasn’t able to get there in time, must be disappointing for him.


  • Congratulations. Pity the Dad was stuck in traffic and not present for the birth of their baby son. She is lucky her waters didn’t break while she was on air. That would have been embarrassing. I’m a bit surprised she was still working when she only had 3 weeks before her due date. I wonder how much the baby weighs.


  • That’s one thing that is very hard to plan for – babies will come when they want, not when you want!


  • Wow! Babies certainly do come when they are ready!


  • Love a good birth story!


  • Congrats, how exciting !! What a gorgeous boy !
    And a day she & her colleagues never will forget :)


  • Aww he’s just way too cute! Congrats to her


  • Congratulations! This will be a great story to tell your little on in the future.


  • Well that’s one labour and delivery to remember.


  • What a beautiful boy, well done Victoria!
