Woman gives birth on hospital chair

1st March 2011

A woman gave birth to her baby with the help of a stranger while in the waiting room at a hospital in Romford.

Frances Randall was at the Queen's Hospital and said there were no midwives or other staff around to help her. Sue Lovell, head of midwifery at Queen's Hospital, said their system was changing: "When labouring women arrive at Queen's Hospital they will be seen immediately by a midwife and moved straight to the most appropriate area - whether that be the labour ward or antenatal. This will eliminate the need for women to stay in waiting areas."
