A father that had to help his wife deliver their twins eight weeks early is grateful for the reassurance provided over the phone by the emergency medical dispatcher.
Mark Corns, with instructions from Julie Hill over the phone, had to provide CPR to Katie, who was delivered first, and then rip the amniotic sac off Emelia’s head once she arrived.
Julie instructed Mark how to do this, and also help the baby take her first breaths.
Julie's guidance and the help she was giving over the phone were absolutely vital. I had done some first aid training with work and strangely enough it had included paediatric CPR but I still needed that reassurance I was doing the right thing.
