PARAMEDICS clocking-on at 6am for a Christmas Day shift could be forgiven for having rather less festive cheer than many people.
However minutes into their 12-hour working day, Callum Sloman and Darragh Coghlan have been stuffed with pleasure after serving to a Newport mum ship her child son at dwelling.
29-year-old Stacey Scawthorn, from Sorrel Drive, known as 999 after going into labour and with the assistance of the decision handler and the arrival of her mum and the Welsh Ambulance Service crew, she was quickly celebrating the arrival of her third baby, child son Kastro-Luke.
Callum stated: “It was our first name of the day. We have been stood down from one name after which moved onto this, and it was good. What a good way to start out Christmas Day!”
There have been no issues though each mum and child have been taken to Royal Gwent Hospital as a precaution, and are actually doing nicely.
Stacey stated: “My little lady was opening her Christmas presents and I used to be considering, oh God, the place’s my mum? All of it occurred so rapidly!
“We ended up having our Christmas dinner and celebrating Christmas on Boxing Day, but it surely’s been an incredible few days and the child’s good.”
