Re: A dad delivered his own baby son at the side of the road.<br />
Lifeboat volunteer Chris White was forced to pull over while ferrying his wife Nicole to the hospital with labour pains.<br />
Their son was born straight into the delighted parents' arms as traffic passed the family parked in a busy residential area.<br />
As a crew member for Barry Dock Lifeboat Station, Chris had completed casualty care training, but had never dealt with a labour before.<br />
Chris used one of his shoelaces as a clamp for the umbilical cord and his shirt to cover the newborn.<br />
He and Nicole were excitedly anticipating the arrival of their second child when Nicole's contractions started at about 10am on Friday, August 9.<br />
The couple phoned the hospital, but medical staff decided Nicole was far from ready to give birth.<br />
Taking the advice in her stride, Nicole carried on with her day, until the contractions became more intense and she found them difficult to ignore.
