Delivered by a Child


Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care


Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.


The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a three year-old girl, to hold a flashlight high over her mummy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby. Very diligently Kathleen did as she was asked. Her mother Heidi pushed and pushed, and after a little while Connor was born.


The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry. The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed three year-old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.


Kathleen quickly responded, “He shouldn’t have crawled in there in the first place. Smack his ass again.”
