Primark shoppers cheer as baby girl is born in the street

Primark baby born as crowd cheers to welcome her

Like a scene from a movie or a rather, a Great British soap opera, crowds cheered and tossed money as a woman gave birth to a baby girl outside a Primark store in Birmingham.
The surprise labour took place while shopping and as luck would have it, a visiting Australian doctor who was passing quickly took charge of the situation. He delivered the infant shortly after and thankfully there were no complications.
The mother’s friend Charlene said. “It was absolutely amazing.” Shielded by blankets during the birth, the woman waved and thanked the many well-wishers as she was taken to the ambulance.
Sgt Sarah Chater, from West Midlands Police, announced the birth on New Street.
She said: “It was a lovely moment, we turned to the crowd and said it was a baby girl and a big cheer went up.”
Both mother and baby are well, police announced.
