Neonatal Flights – Sudden Births & Unexpected Arrivals
The Real Doc Martin – Capital Air Ambulance’s Devon based Medical Director Dr Terry Martin – gives a snapshot of the service’s response when babies decide to arrive unexpectedly.
It’s not an unusual scenario. A young couple, happily expecting their first baby, and fully aware that life will change completely and permanently in a few months’ time, decide to take one last long holiday in the sun ‘while they can’.
She’s 27 weeks in to a normal pregnancy, and he’s making sure she has a great holiday and books his lovely wife on to all the excursions and adventures that are on offer at their resort. Who said that holidays are restful? Here the scenario changes significantly, and the story unfolds.
