This Morning’s Doctor Gives Birth and Reveals Lovely Name

by Laura Driver

This Morning doctor, Dr Sara Kayat, announced that she had given birth to a baby boy revealing that he arrived 10 days early.

She told a shocked Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that her husband had to 'catch' the baby after she gave birth in the bath at their home "Because it was my first, everyone was expected it to be a week or so later. It took us by surprise. I’m at home, I always wanted a water birth but hadn’t expected it to be in my bath. My poor husband had to capture the baby as it was ejecting out in the bath” Holly and Phil looked shocked by her story.

Dr Sara added that they called an ambulance, which arrived about 20 minutes later, and the midwife arrived a further 20 minutes after that revealing that she had experienced pains for days prior that she thought were muscular - but she now realises these were probably contractions. "I was probably having contractions for a few days before – I thought it was muscular. I was doing yoga and pilates. I was in active labour for only 2 hours."

When Holly and Phil said she seemed in great spirits, she added: "The one good thing about having it at home without any drugs is that the next day you’re bouncing around."

Dr Sara revealed on Instagram that she had named her baby Harris, writing: "Harris Walker born yesterday to the happiest parents alive.

Congratulations to Dr Kayat!
