When Caroline Meech rushed to hospital to give birth to her third child, she probably didn't expect such a dramatic labour. Caroline, and her husband Mike, only made it as far as the Royal Hampshire County hospital doors before going into labour, and it was all caught on CCTV.

Mrs Meech made it to the hospital before reaching the final stage of labour in the doorway. She then proceeded to give birth, and was rather comically joined by the opening and closing of the automatic doors every time she pushed.

Watch the CCTV footage below:

Midwives rushed to her aid, and little Alice Harriet was born within the next ten minutes, weighing a healthy 8lb 3oz.

Caroline praised her husband: "Mike was brilliant. I was biting his thumb. He didn't seem to mind. I couldn't have done it without him." She also insisted that the midwives did try and get her in a wheelchair to a room, but she was unable to get up.
