Baby Aiden Just Couldn't Wait
September 26, 2014
A ground breaking project at a supported living scheme in Brynmawr has scored another first. In fact baby Aiden was so keen to join the Ffynnon Court Move On Project that he arrived five weeks early with just his Dad on hand to help!
Jadeelee Davies was one of the first residents to get a place on the project which supports people and helps them to live more independently.
She wasn’t expecting to give birth until later this month. So when she had back pains Jadeelee thought nothing of them. Instead, she contacted her partner, Robert Baker, and asked him to buy her some painkillers on his way home from work.
However, by the time he arrived at Ffynnon Court they realised she was in labour.
“I was in agony by then. Robert dialled 999 and they told him that it was alright and an ambulance would be with us in plenty of time,” said Jadeelee.
Baby Aiden, however, had other ideas, and was born shortly afterwards with his Dad acting as an impromptu midwife.
“I didn’t have time to panic or worry, I just had to get on with it,” said Robert. “As Aiden was being born I could see he had wrapped the cord around himself. Jadeelee was concerned because she couldn’t hear him crying and he was wriggling and kicking as I freed the cord.”
By the time the paramedics arrived Robert had everything under control.
Mother and baby spent four days in hospital before returning to their home.
“He is a very good baby and we are so happy to have him, even if it was five weeks early,” said Jadeelee.
