Baby had no time to wait, not even for the paramedics

IT was an early start for a pregnant mum this morning when her baby decided it was time to come into the world.

The newborn arrived before 4am and without the assistance of medical staff.

Paramedics arrived at the Brassall residence after the birth to find mother and child fit and healthy.

After an initial assessment, the baby girl and mum were transported to Ipswich Hospital.
