A 39-year old woman in Britain gave birth to her son in the bathroom of a luxury hotel after she was turned away from a hospital.
Michelle Booth revealed that she was asked to leave the maternity unit of the University College Hospital in London after the doctors decided that she was only in the early stages of labor. Michelle and her partner, Richard Eades, checked into Radisson Edwardian Grafton hotel in order to be close to the hospital.
AdvertisementMichelle took two paracetamol tablets to numb the labor pains as she gave birth to an 8lb 8oz baby boy in their bathroom just four hours after checking in. The parents have named the boy George and middle name Reggie in a tribute to the hotel's initials.
Michelle revealed that birth paramedics soon arrived and took her and her baby to the hospital to monitor their condition. The 39-year old praised the hotel staff, saying that they were brilliant. "The staff were brilliant. They upgraded us, which was really sweet. We were all laughing and joking with them about room service and saying 'We promise we won't have a baby'. But then we did. The truth of it was I was very close to giving birth. I was worried about getting thrown out of the hotel, so I was shouting into the duvet", Michelle said.
