<p>A woman was forced to deliver her nephew in a hospital car park and then give him the kiss of life after doctors sent his mother home prematurely. <br></p><p>First-time mother Kirsty Brook, 30, had been to
hospital on November 13 fearing she was in labour, even though her baby wasn't due for another five weeks. <br></p><p>But staff told her she simply had a urine infection and sent her home at 2pm that day. <br></p><p>/11/22/article-2236970-16299409000005DC-302_306x423.jpg" width="306" height="423" alt="Harry's father Mark (pictured) was also in the car when Michelle gave his son the kiss of life" class="blkBorder" />

<p>She said: 'I feel disgruntled about
it. I was a first-time mum, I didn&#8217;t know what was going on. I didn&#8217;t
know the difference between contractions and a water infection. <br>
</p>
<p>'It felt like they were trying to fob me off, as if they were saying &#8216;don&#8217;t be silly, you&#8217;re not in labour&#8217;. <br></p>
<p>'It was surreal, like it was happening to someone else. I just wanted to get to the hospital. 'Thankfully Michelle was there or else Harry may not have been here today. She was brilliant.' </p>

<p>Full-time mother-of-three Ms Brook-Lomas, 34, who used her baby first-aid training from her former job as a childminder, said: 'I had asked Kirsty a few times if she wanted me to pull over as we drove to hospital but she said "&#8216;just get me there". <br></p><p>'As we were approaching the hospital she said she wanted to push and when I saw the car park, I just did a handbrake turn across four spaces near the entrance, jumped out and Mark raced in to get the midwife.</p>
<p>'Kirsty was in the back seats and I talked her through it. It all happened within minutes.</p><p>'When the baby arrived he had mucus in his mouth so I wiped it out. He wasn&#8217;t breathing so I gave him the kiss of life, then he started crying and I gave him to Kirsty to do skin-to-skin.</p><p>'The medics came and the umbilical cord was cut before he was taken inside.'</p><p>Ms Brook said: 'I was overjoyed when Harry started to cry. We all were. It wasn&#8217;t the birth I was expecting.'</p><p>'I felt my waters break that morning, but the hospital put a baby monitor on me, checked me over and sent me home.</p>
<p>'The pains kept getting worse and by about 8pm I went to my sister&#8217;s home and she suggested I have a bath. <br>
</p>
<p>'When I got out we timed the contractions at three minutes and phoned the hospital and they said to come in. </p>
<p>'I saw the doctor who sent us home
the next day and he said to me "I&#8217;m so sorry, I haven&#8217;t got X-ray eyes. I
honestly believed you had a water infection".' </p><p>Baby Harry is now back at home with his parents. His mother added: 'He is wonderful. We are over the moon.'</p><p>A spokesperson for Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust said: 'We are sorry to learn of these concerns and we would urge Miss Brook to contact us so we can discuss them with her.'<br><br><br></p><p> </p>
