The postman made the ultimate delivery when he delivered his baby daughter
‘The pains were getting worse and I was walking up and down the living room saying to myself hurry up Scott.
‘He got home at 8.42am and I told him I thought the baby was coming. I phoned the hospital who told me to come in but I shouted that I needed to push.
‘The midwife wanted to speak to Scott and then I put myself into the position ready to give birth on the living room floor.
‘Scott put the phone on loud speaker and the midwife talked Scott through what to do. He reacted fast and delivered our daughter with their guidance. He didn’t even have time to take his coat off when he got home.
‘Scott was overwhelmed and stunned to deliver the baby on the living room floor.’
Joanne says the midwives arrived shortly after the birth before hailing Scott’s skills.
She said: ‘They said Scott had done a fantastic job. He then rang close family members and friends to say what had happened and at first they thought he was winding them up but they all think it was amazing what he did.
‘How many people can say they delivered their own child. He’s a postie and he has taken delivering to the next level.’
Daughter Taymar was born on her due date August 2 after her parents have been together for two years.
Joanne also has an eight-year-old son Cai while Scott has a daughter Georgia, 17.

Joanne said: ‘If Scott hadn’t come back in time I would have had to deliver Taymar myself which would have been scary.
‘I coped very well when giving birth to Taymar. It happened very quickly but I kept calm.
‘I can’t thank Scott enough for what he did bringing our daughter into the world. It is so special to him what he did.
‘I would like to thank all the midwives involved that day. They all did a great job from Ystrad Mynach Hospital. Taymar didn’t need to go to hospital after she was born and I was all okay too.
‘Scott’s work friends said he did amazing job and that he’s taken delivering post to the next level delivering babies as well.’
