Dad’s roadside delivery is story with a nappy ending

Editor's Viewpoint

Everyone will congratulate Paul Doherty, who used his shoelaces to tie his new baby's umbilical cord after she was born prematurely in the family car on the way to the hospital.

Paul and his wife, Georgina, set off on the short journey from Burnfoot to reach Altnagelvin hospital, but their baby daughter, Saphia, had other ideas, and arrived early.

After such an experience, the 4am feeds will surely seem, by contrast, like a walk in the park.

This story with a happy ending will cheer all of us at a time when we need some good news in the midst of the many stories of conflict and confrontation.
