Ms Ronson said: "Dealing with a pregnant woman legs akimbo in a car park is not normally part of my repertoire."The mother was saying the baby's head is coming out... there wasn't time to get her to maternity so we had to deliver the baby right there."Dr Ibrahim said the couple were keen to trace the elderly couple who drove them to the hospital."They were amazing, they were so kind," he said."I didn't get their names and we just want to thank them."
