Birth At Brisbane Market
Market-goers assisted with the birth of a baby boy at the Boundary Street Markets in the Brisbane suburb of West End around 2 weeks ago. The baby’s father arrived at the market to pick up his wife only to find an additional family member had been born.
The baby was delivered alongside market stalls and cafes with market-goers offering shirts and clothing to help with the birth. Markets Co-ordinator, David Bostock, said "It was like a multicultural get-together, to help with care and attention for this baby."
