Man uses YouTube to help deliver baby

A British man put YouTube video tutorials to the test by using one to assist him in the birth of his baby.

Marc Stephens, a naval engineer from Cornwall, England decided to do a little research when his wife Jo started to feel a little discomfort.

“I Googled how to deliver a baby, watched a few videos and basically swotted up, I can tell you one of them was called ‘How to Deliver a Baby in a Taxicab.'” Mr Stephens said to the BBC


Stephens phoned the midwife when his wife awoke having very regular contractions, but when no midwives available to come to the house, they were told to order an ambulance. When the ambulance didn’t arrive in time, the YouTube tutorials kicked into gear.

“The videos gave me peace of mind. I think I would have coped, but watching videos made things much easier,” he added.

“My youngest daughter woke up and was standing right behind me watching the whole thing!” he told the Telegraph.

To which Jo added:

“I wasn’t panicking at all. I have to say, out of all my four labors, that was the one I enjoyed the most.”
