Mother has her baby on the loo!

A mum was feeling flushed with pride yesterday after giving birth to a baby - in a toilet.

Sally Robertson found herself caught short when she went to the loo in the middle of the night.

And a few minutes later she ended up delivering a lav-ely baby girl.

Last night mum-of-two Sally said she could not believe how calm she was about her alternative birth.

She said: "When my waters broke in the toilet, I knew the baby was on the way.

"I was already two weeks overdue and I was actually due to go into hospital later in the day to be induced.

"My husband Billy was on the phone trying to call his mum, but I knew I had to do something quick.

"In fact, Billy was in such a panic that I had to do all the hard work myself.

"Luckily the birth only took a few minutes and I didn't feel much pain."

A team of amazed paramedics arrived and gave both mum and baby the all clear.

Sally's mum-in-law Eileen Robertson said she was stunned at what happened.

She said: "I was talking to Billy on the phone telling him what to do.

"But Sally was so calm about the whole thing.

"In fact, she even shouted from the bathroom that she was OK."

Sally, of Hawthorn Road, Langlee, Galashiels, said she was grateful everything worked out.

And she revealed the only name she could give her new baby was Lucy.

She said: "We can all laugh about it now and we'll have great fun telling Lucy in the future about her dramatic arrival into the world."
