cheap nike nfl jerseys ‘Hero’ South Western Railway guard helps woman in labour on train
He tweeted soon afterwards: “So very pleased to be able to assist a lady that had gone into labour on my train today between Waterloo and Farnham. Many congratulations on the impending birth of your daughter.”
After a SWR customer responded by calling him a hero, Martin responded with typical modesty and humour: “I did nothing more than call for an ambulance and make sure there was some one able to wait with the lady until help arrived. To the passengers, sorry for the little delay caused on your way to Farnham!”
SWR staff were so taken with the news of the first “train baby”, they arranged to meet Noemi and Sophia at Farnham station to spoil them with some presents including a baby grow that reads: “My journey started on South Western Railway”.
Noemi said: “I was only going in to London to run some errands. I went in to labour at 10.40 and by 11.10 baby Sophia was born at the hospital! My friends and family were all very shocked when I told them the story.”
Alan Penlington, Director of Customer Experience for South Western Railway, said: “Everyone was delighted by the news and smitten when they saw the photo of baby Sophia. It’s not every day we hear about a ‘South Western Railway baby’ so we wanted to spoil Noemi and baby Sophia with some treats to celebrate her arrival.
“Well done to all of our colleagues who helped to make Noemi’s experience as comfortable as possible by reassuring her and acting speedily to get the ambulance there on time. We all wish baby Sophia the very best for the future and look forward to welcoming her on to one of our services very shortly!”
