Medic delivers own baby (see the channel 7 video)
HARWICH - Talk about keeping it "all in the family". Harwich paramedic Tom Gould received a call while on duty that his wife Sarah was having contractions at their home in Chatham. When he got home she could not walk to the car so Gould called a Chatham ambulance. It seems little Lily just wasn't going to wait and came into the world in the ambulance on the way to the hospital by Exit 9. Tom helped deliver the baby girl, their second child, and cut the umbilical cord himself. Mother and baby are doing just fine. Posted on 8/24 at 6:30 PM.
