Amy Stout was 37.5 weeks pregnant
It’s been an extraordinary 24 hours for family barrister Amy Stout, who had to get a taxi from the Supreme Court as she was due to give birth.
Stout, a barrister and head of pupillage at London chambers 3 Dr Johnson’s Buildings, was in the top court on Wednesday at 37.5 weeks pregnant. “What could possibly go wrong?”, she tweeted.
Fast forward a few hours, and Stout had an update for her followers: “To answer my own seemingly rhetorical question — baby was born at 3.30am,” she wrote. “I ended up getting a taxi from the Supreme Court to the hospital (only 5 mins away). What a day!”
