Elementary School Teacher Gives Birth in Her Classroom

Showing remarkable dedication to her job, Diane Krish-Veeramany, a primary school teacher in Chigwell, UK, gave birth to her son in her own classroom with the assistance of her colleagues:

She said: "I texted my husband to come and get me but my colleagues asked if I wanted an ambulance.

"I said 'I'll just go home.' I just didn't think it would be a contraction as it didn't feel like one."

But it soon became clear she was going into labour, and three teaching assistants, Dita Gojnovci, Chris Sword and Sam Mustafa, stepped in to help.

The three delivered the baby while taking instructions from paramedics over the phone, as towels and other equipment were gathered from around the school.
