A couple were en route to the National Maternity Hospital on Holles Street for a routine check-up this morning when something pretty unexpected happened. 

The birth of their child. 

In their car. 

On the footpath of Hatch Street. 

Yeah, no big deal. 

Dublin Fire Brigade received a call and were en route, according to, but by the time they arrived at 8.50am - the baby girl had already been delivered. 

What a way to enter the world!

Passersby helped as the mother delivered the child herself. 

They were then transported to hospital by ambulance where they are doing well.
