After being checked over by paramedics, mother and baby were taken to St Thomas’ Hospital.

It was a bit of rush getting off the train and finding somewhere private so I was absolutely relieved when I got to the first aid room.

The staff looked after me really well and made it as easy as possible. We were hoping that Reign would wait, but there was no chance. The raspberry leaf tea that I had must have really worked!

I tried to calm Evelyn down as much as I could, but I’m not sure that the paramedics fully believed her when she said that the baby was coming right now!

Everything happened so quickly and everyone responded well to the situation – it was a first for me and something that will live long in the memory.
