Early start for mum as baby decides today's the day

A local woman didn't have time to make it to hospital this morning which resulted in her giving birth to her baby boy at home.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said the Collingwood Park woman successfully delivered the child with the help of an ambulance dispatcher over the phone at about 4.40am this morning.

Paramedics arrived on scene a short time after.

Both mother and baby were later transported to Ipswich Hospital in a stable condition.
