A mum-to-be was shocked when her baby arrived while she was sat on the loo.

Gemma Gaylard planned to have a water birth but did not even know she was in labour when Jacob arrived unexpectedly weighing 8lb 10oz.

The 21-year-old - who was 38 weeks pregnant - called for her partner Tom Harp, 34, who scooped the baby out of the toilet.

The tot is now three weeks old and doing well back at home in Bridport, Dorset.

Gemma said: "I had been having some back ache that morning and walked around a lot.

"At about 3.50pm I felt like I needed the toilet so I went to the bathroom.

"After I sat down I noticed there was a lot of blood and I thought something was wrong so I called for Tom.

"When he saw the blood he thought I'd had a miscarriage but when I stood up he said 'oh my god, the baby's down the toilet'.

"He had to fish him out quickly and dry him off with some towels and then he started crying.

"I had been really scared about giving birth, I wouldn't even let people talk about it in my house because I was so terrified."
