Father delivers premature twin daughters on bathroom floor

Two Loughborough parents have been reunited with the ambulance dispatcher who guided them through the delivery of their premature twin daughters.

Jenny Corns went into labour at home in January just 32 weeks into her pregnancy, and Emelia and Katie were delivered by husband Mark as he followed instructions over the phone.

Katie was born first but was not breathing, and Emelia was in a breech position and born with her half of the amniotic sac over her head.

Dominic Heale spoke to Jenny and Mark Corns, medical dispatcher Julie Hill and paramedic Michelle Moreland.
