    This report has some contradictions!

    It states:

    'They said they were not sending an ambulance and told me I had had nine months to sort out a lift.'

    Her daughter Mariah was delivered on a pavement outside the hospital by a passer-by, just before ambulance crews arrived.

    She said: 'I don't really remember much after that. Mariah was born, then the paramedics arrived then after that the midwives arrived. I think I went into shock.

    'It's just lucky that the physio was there.'
