Williams changed his mind seconds later as his partner of nine years writhed in pain.
“Oh no. No, she’s actually giving birth,” Williams said. “What do I do? The baby is crying and moving and everything.”
Holbrook talked Williams through the procedure, and Phillip Alan Williams was delivered safely, weighing 4 pounds, 13 ounces, Wales Online reported.
“I’ve delivered five babies in my time as a call handler and this one’s definitely up there in terms of the most dramatic,” Holbrook told Wales Online.
“The call handler kept me calm and gave me really clear instructions about what I had to do, despite my sheer panic,” Williams said.
Despite the surprise and stress surrounding the birth, the new parents told ITV News they were “over the moon.”
“One minute we were planning for a wedding,” Williams said. “Now we’re planning for a nursery.”
