The independent voice of the global moving industry


Another moving delivery from Mason’s

Jan 21, 2019
On Monday, 27 November 2018, Richard Mason from Mason’s Moving in Wales took part in a delivery that was somewhat unusual, even for an experienced mover.

Masons special delivery_Sam_Daniel_Baby_BellaThe story unfolded when Richard, and his wife, Michelle, received a text from their son, Daniel, saying that his pregnant partner, Sam, was going into labour. It was 10:15pm.

By midnight Sam’s contractions had started but were still in their mild stages, but by 4:15am they had taken on some urgency.  Richard and Michelle collected Lynn Jenkins (Michelle’s mum, who was the designated baby sitter for Sam’s two younger daughters) and headed off to their house in Barry Island to take Sam and Daniel to hospital.  However, baby had other ideas.  As soon as Sam stepped outside the house it became clear that it was time. Richard called for an ambulance.

As Richard stayed on the phone to the ambulance services, baby continued on its inevitable journey.  Aided by Richard, Daniel (who was speechless), Michelle, Lynn (who tried to remain calm) and plenty of towels, Sam gave birth to baby Bella at 5:01 that morning.  Unable to find any string in the house to tie off the umbilical cord, Richard used one of his own shoe laces.  Minutes later, the paramedics arrived and supervised the cutting of the cord by new daddy, Daniel. 

Mother and baby Bella are still doing well. 

This was the second Masons delivery within a few weeks. Masons Self Storage’s Sales & Marketing Manager, James Mason, Director Gordon Mason's son, and his partner, Lucy, welcomed Oliver James Mason to the world on 31 October 2018, a fifth generation of Masons to join the firm.
