St Neots Partners' special delivery
WaitroseDeliver took on a new meaning for two St Neots Partners when they helped a neighbour give birth to her baby girl, Lara.
Robin Silvester and Melanie Gonzales came to the resccue of a neighbour Theresa Smith, when she started to go into labour late at night while she was home alone.
Robin and Melanie are first aiders at their branch, but neither of them had any training in delivering a baby. However, they helped ensure the delivery was smooth and comforted Theresa until the emergency services arrived.
