Diane Krish-Veeramy went into labour on Thursday at Manford Primary School, Chigwell
A primary school teacher has thanked colleagues who helped deliver her baby in a classroom.
Diane Krish-Veeramany, 30, went into labour soon after reporting ill during a staff meeting at Manford Primary School in Chigwell on Thursday.
Her husband Vijaye Veeramany was on his way to pick up his wife when he got a call telling him she was on the verge of giving birth.
Less than 20 minutes later teaching assistants Dita Gojnovci, Chris Sword and Sam Mustafa helped deliver her son Jonah in a classroom.
Mrs Krish-Veeramany told the BBC: "Everyone was so supportive and just acted on instinct."
She added: "Luckily, my husband got to the school before I gave birth."
Mrs Krish-Veeramany was taken to Queens Hospital in Romford and discharged later the same day.
The room where she gave birth has now been named Jonah's room.
