Husband helps wife deliver baby with YouTube’s help!

Marc Stephens delivered his baby son after watching Do It Yourself baby birth video clips on YouTube just hours later when his wife went into labour three weeks early on March 21, media reported.

In what is claimed to be the world’s first, a 28-year-old man has helped his wife deliver a baby successfully with online assistance from a popular video- sharing site.

Marc Stephens delivered his baby son after watching Do It Yourself baby birth video clips on YouTube just hours later when his wife went into labour three weeks early on March 21, media reported.

The naval engineer, who already has three children with his wife Jo, also 28, decided to search the Internet as she felt some discomfort. Four hours later, when the couple were told by hospital staff that no midwife was available as Jo went into sudden labour, he used his new-found knowledge.

Stephens, who has also learned how to play the guitar and do a Rubik’s cube from ‘YouTube’ videos, decided to take check out the video-sharing site’s childbirth tips. Amongst the videos, he viewed was one entitled “How to Deliver a Baby in a Taxi Cab“.

“I spent about half-a-hour on Google and watched a couple of videos on ‘YouTube’. One was a cheesy American video on ‘this is how you give birth. In reality it didn’t actually go into that much detail when she was talking. It only lasted a couple of minutes. I remember that was useful,” he said.

After giving birth, Jo, said that it was her most relaxed labour. “I was quite relaxed. I wasn’t panicking at all. I have to say, out of all my four labours, that was the one I enjoyed the most. It’s the most relaxed one.

“There was no sense of panic in his voice at all. It was like it was another day at work for him. Mark is one of those people he can put his hand to anything. He has learnt quite a few things off ‘YouTube’ — how to do a Rubik’s cube and play the guitar,” she said.
