11am: NEW parents Barry Swindells and Tenille Trapp have one hell of a story to tell their first child, Miley Swindells, when she is older.

Two nights ago, when heavily pregnant Ms Trapp told her partner the baby was on its way, he had no idea how fast their little bundle of joy would arrive.

The mother was forced to give birth in the hallway of their Victoria Plains home and Mr Swindells said he did the only thing he could – step up.

“I dialled 000 (at about 11pm) and they talked me through (the procedure),” he said.

“Five minutes after she was born, the ambulance showed up.”

The proud parents and baby Miley were then taken to Mackay Base Hospital.

Listen to the audio clip below of the phone call between the QAS and the father of the baby.

Please be aware this recording may offend some listeners.
