Father follows YouTube video to deliver baby Answered

An engineer in Cornwall delivered his baby son after watching an instructional video on YouTube.

Marc Stephens watched the videos as a precaution when his wife Jo started to feel some discomfort.

Four hours later, his wife went into labour and started giving birth before an ambulance could arrive at their home in Redruth.

Mr Stephens said his wife was on all fours when he saw the head starting to come out.

"This is our fourth child now and while for our first I spent most of the time at my wife's head, now I'm not afraid to go down to the business end.

Hey, I helped with our delivery as well -- I filled out and signed a lot of the paperwork :-) But I didn't put it on YouTube; bureaucracy is so boring...
