A Queensland dad who called Triple Zero after his pregnant wife’s waters broke found himself being coaxed through handling his own daughter’s delivery.

It was about 6am last Wednesday when Ipswich woman Navjot Kaur rang her husband Ravideep Singh to tell him their new baby was on the way.

“She was saying, can you come here quickly, the baby’s coming – and I was saying, try not to push, just hold it a little,” Mr Singh said.

Informed by Ms Kaur that there was no question of “holding” the baby, Mr Singh called Triple Zero when he got home.

Emergency medical dispatcher Allie Roser took it as her first call of the day, and after sending an ambulance, helped talk Mr Singh through delivering the baby.

“You can see part of the baby now?” she said at one point during the call.

“Exactly, I can see the hairs,” Mr Singh replied.

The paramedics arrived just minutes before the couples’ new daughter entered the world. A relieved Mr Singh cut the umbilical cord.

Less than a week on, the emergency personnel have been reunited with the family.

“Thanks are not enough,” Ms Kaur said.
