Dad helps deliver baby on side of M1 at Dapto


The parents of a baby boy that was born on the side of the Princes Motorway at Dapto late yesterday morning have an awesome story to tell when his 18th rolls around.

Baby Alby couldn't wait any longer, forcing dad James Nathaniel to pull over and help mum Britteny with a roadside delivery.

Their midwife arrived on scene just as the little guy was appearing.

Paramedics also assisted and allowed the father to cut the umbilical cord.


Alby weighed in at 3.7 kilograms once he arrived at Wollongong Hospital where mum and bub are doing well.
