Three-year-old toddler helps mom deliver sibling
Derbyshire, United Kingdom (4E) – Joshan Chima, a 3-year old toddler from Spondon, Derby, helped his mother deliver his baby sister inside a parked car.
Kaz Chima, 35, was driving his wife, Sonia, 30, to the hospital on May 2 when she told her husband to stop the car because the baby was ready to deliver.
They pulled over, and while Kaz was on his phone for help, their son Joshan remained calm and advised his mother on breathing techniques while holding her hand. A few minutes later, his baby sister was born in the front seat of their car.
Paramedics arrived just as the baby’s head was showing, and allowed Joshan to stay inside the car while Sonia gave birth. Afterwards, mom and baby were taken to the Royal Derby Hospital for further medical care.
The Chimas decided to name their daughter Ashriya, which means beauty and perfection.
