Father-to-Be Shifts Labour Scene, Bicycles to Hospital to Save Mother’s Life

A New Zealand politician took the time to cycle 10 miles to the hospital in labor to save a life.

After he successfully induced contractions, New Zealand politician Dave Cull wrote about his experience in a Facebook post.

“Later the baby came and I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. My cycling route for the day was from south of the city to where the hospital is located. I was in labor for two hours while I was making my way there,” he wrote.

The MP for Taupo, New Zealand also thought about his wife and warned her “to be careful on Monday”.

New Zealand’s new Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her baby, Neve Te Aroha Ardern, arrived at hospital in Auckland Saturday, four days after becoming the first pair to give birth in the same week in New Zealand history.

Ardern, 35, announced her pregnancy at the beginning of her term, making her the first elected world leader to do so.

In August, Ardern became the first woman to ever lead the New Zealand Labour Party in its century-long history and the first to become the country’s prime minister during her first term.
