Chris, father of one (born 2009), hometown Coventry

All birthing plans made beforehand went straight out of the window as my wife's waters broke three weeks early. She was induced after 48 hours and when my son was born I heard the midwife shout "hit the emergency button" which I'm sure would be every parents nightmare even though I had only been a parent for less than a minute. Luckily after about seven people raced into our room they decided that my beautiful baby boy was ok but was kept in hospital a few extra days to make sure all was ok. He is now 2 years and 4 months old.
