    Just as well she didn't give birth to it in a Primark Factory, or it would be working on the production line by now.

    "Good for her, I hope mother and baby are safe and well."

    That's all that really needs to be said about this story.

    Erm, why? You'd think being in town you're going to be closer to the hospital.

    "The mother was waving at everyone, telling everyone to film her. Everyone had their phones out and she was waving at them as she went into the ambulance."
    Wow what a show off.

    Just a couple of thoughts.

    Firstly, why did they feel the need to mention Primark? Secondly, and frankly quite disturbingly, why on earth would an Australian doctor pick a place like Birmingham as a holiday destination?

    Happened around the corner from my work. Sensational story, to be fair. Of course it's going to get attention.

    Very multicultural and multiethnic
    Why is this bad?

    Even if you see a nice park for example, it'll be full of really dangerous chavs
    You must be an absolute squirt in real life if you think a bunch of kids in tracksuits are dangerous.

    I guess a lot of people find the birth of a child (any child) uplifting?

    Sports isn't much better but gets a whole segment on the news!

    Cause it's not that easy to just get up and walk into a shop when you're in labour?

    Lol yes it is.. how do you think women get to the hospital?

    It's not like the baby just drops out when her waters go

    Yeah women get to the hospital fine but in this case there clearly wasn't hours between her waters breaking and her giving birth hence her having the baby in a street not a hospital.
