Bride Gives Birth on Her Wedding Day!

By Humber River Health

Nothing was going to stop Tamra Palmer from getting married that Saturday afternoon. She expected to feel nervous butterflies, but there was another more pressing feeling she didn’t immediately recognize as labour pain.

Although the bride purposely planned the ceremony two weeks prior to her due date, baby Eden Beverly Rose proved she was just as determined not to miss the wedding, when she was born in the back of an ambulance, en route to Humber River Health.

Thanks to the quick work and dedication of physicians and staff, the hospital’s chapel was transformed to accommodate friends and family of the bride and her groom, Robert Griffiths. Eden Beverly Rose had front row seats as her bassinette held a place of honour beside her parents and her big sister for the nuptials.
