Paramedic crews attached to Dublin Fire Brigade delivered two babies in separate incidents this morning.
The ambulance crews were attending two separate calls in north Dublin when they realised the mothers would not make it to the hospital in time.
The first newborn was delivered by paramedics attached to the North Strand fire station at 1.30am on the journey to hospital.
The second birth happened at the mother's home before the newborn baby and mother were brought to hospital by a crew from Kilbarrack fire station just after 6am.
A source said that both mothers and newborns “are in good health” and doing well thanks to the assistance of the DFB paramedics.
