A young Dutch mum who was helped by cops into a dental surgery and gave birth in the dentist’s chair after suffering labour pains on the street has been sent a bill for clean-up costs.
Jessica Aaldering had no idea she was pregnant while she was riding her bike near dentist Rene Klaassen’s clinic in the town of Velp in the Dutch province Gelderland.
The Dutch woman, 23, was worried that she was ill when she suddenly started feeling severe stomach pain.
Two nearby cops who rely she was in difficulty had helped her into the dental surgery nearby, and after being put in the dentist chair to lie down she suddenly gave birth to a baby.
Even more drama occurred when one of the police officers had to massage the baby’s heart to revive him due to an umbilical cord rupture.
His heroic act saved the little one before emergency services arrived on the scene and provided oxygen.
The police officers involved have been named as Rob van Duuren and Milan van der Heijden.
However, several weeks later, the new mum received an unexpected bill from the dentist asking her to pay EUR 211.75 due to ‘delivery damage’, according to local media.
The dental practice argued that they had to hire a cleaning company to scrub the mess in the treatment room.
The irritated mum said that her health insurance company refused to cover the costs as it is only valid for domestic and hospital births and not deliveries in dental clinics.
Luckily, the police came to Jessica’s rescue again and offered to pay the cleaning bill, according to local media.
