A young father has described the moment he had to deliver his second child as the "best experience" of his life, as he and his partner thanked the ambulance worker who guided them through the process.
Ian Lumsden, 23, found himself having to take on the role normally reserved for highly trained health professionals when his partner, Lindsay Murray, went into labour very quickly on April 13 this year.
Over a whirlwind 20 minutes, Mr Lumsden successfully managed to deliver baby Olivia in the couple's West Lothian home - guided by ambulance call handler Bobby Garvie, who was on the other end of the phone.
Mr Lumsden said: "It was 20 minutes but it felt like 20 seconds. It's a bit of a blur. I remember bits and pieces but it all seemed like it happened in an instant.
"In the time it took Lindsay's mum to get a taxi from her house to ours, the baby was already here.
