One woman got the best Christmas gift of all — a new baby girl!
A Tasmanian woman was wrapping gifts under her Christmas tree when she had a special holiday surprise: She went into labour! But by the time the ambulance crew arrived, she was too far along to go to the hospital — so she gave birth right under the Christmas tree, according to ABC News!
The baby was delivered at 12:06 a.m. on Christmas Day. To add to the festive cheer, one of the paramedics was wearing antlers!
Bruce Connor from the Tasmanian Ambulance Service said the birth went well and was a great way to celebrate the holiday: “To deliver one at 12:06 a.m. on Christmas Day is a special event for us, especially under the Christmas tree at home and I believe that the intensive care paramedic was wearing a pair of antlers at the time.”
Do you think the parents will name the baby girl something after the holiday? What festive names would you suggest? Maybe… Holly, Joy, Carol or Mary (for Merry!)?
