A mum has hit the jackpot after giving birth at bingo.

Tammy Hall, 30, gave birth to a bouncing baby boy after going into labour part way through her game at Club3000 in Blackpool.

Luckily her family and the staff were all on hand to help, and baby Teddie was delivered in the carpark just minutes later.

Mum and baby are now both at home and doing well.

Mum of four Tammy, from Blackpool, says: “I had been having twinges but at the interval, I went outside for some fresh air, and I had a massive contraction.

“I managed to get inside to the toilets, and I had another big contraction. The staff were brilliant, one called an ambulance, another was trying to make me comfortable. My mum was there too.

“When the paramedics arrived, I was wheeled past all the customers, on a stretcher.

“The plan was to take me to hospital, but I could feel the baby’s head, even though I still had my trousers on. Baby Teddie was born in the ambulance, right there in the carpark.

“We’ve been back to introduce him to the staff, and we joked he’s bound to be a bingo fan when he’s bigger. I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot.”

Tammy was five days overdue with her fourth child when she decided to go to bingo with her mum, Tina, 56, sister, Charlene, 36, and niece, Alaska, 18, on October 30.

She says: “I’d had a few mild twinges, but it was nothing serious. I was booked in to be induced on November 1.  I thought it might take my mind off the wait if I went to bingo for an hour.

“I started to feel a bit hot, and I went outside in the interval for a bit of fresh air and had a massive contraction. I felt really sick. Alaska helped me back inside to the toilets and I had another contraction. I knew then, he was on his way.

“The staff were great, looking after me, but when the paramedics arrived, they couldn’t fit the stretcher into the ladies’ loos and that took a few minutes to sort out.

“I was wheeled past all the customers on my way out, and everyone was wishing me well. By the time I got outside, onto the carpark, I could feel the head. I knew I had no chance of making it to hospital.”

Baby Teddie was born just moments later, weighing 8lbs 9ozs. Tammy’s labour, from start to finish, lasted less than 30 minutes.

She had long labours with her older three children, Demi, 12, Henley, 9 and Rueben-Bleu, 3, who were all born in hospital and so Teddie’s speedy arrival was unexpected.

Mum and baby were taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital for checks and were allowed home four days later, both perfectly healthy.

Tammy says: “On his birth certificate, he’s registered as being born in a car park, which will make him laugh when he’s older.

I’ve been back to bingo with gifts for the staff and they all gave Teddie a cuddle. He’s a little celebrity; people have stopped me in the street to ask if he’s the Bingo baby.

“We’ve joked he’s bound to be a Bingo fan when he grows up. As for me, I’ve got a full house now!”

To round off the celebrations, Tammy’s sister, Charlene, won £100 on the night, meaning a share of £12.50 each for the entire family.
