Mum who gave birth in dentist’s chair after being helped into surgery by cops is sent £200 bill for clean-up costs


A MUM who gave birth in a dentist’s chair after being helped into the surgery by two cops has been sent a £200 bill for clean-up costs.

Jessica Aaldering, 23, had no idea she was pregnant when she started suffering labour pains on the street earlier this month.

The Dutch woman was riding her bike near dentist Rene Klaassen’s clinic in the town of Velp in the Dutch province Gelderland when her severe stomach pain began.

Two police officers who were nearby noticed she was in difficulty and helped her into the dental surgery nearby.

After being put in the dentist chair to lie down, Ms Aaldering suddenly gave birth to a baby.

Due to an umbilical cord rupture, one of the police officers had to massage the baby’s heart to revive him after birth.

The cop managed to save the little one before emergency services arrived on the scene and provided oxygen.

The baby, named Herman, was then moved to Arnhem Rijnstate Hospital where he was placed in an incubator.

However, several weeks later after giving birth, the new mum received an unexpected bill from the dentist asking her to pay €211.75 (£184) due to “delivery damage”, according to local media.

The dental practice argued that they had to hire a cleaning company to clean 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.

The police officers involved have been named as Rob van Duuren and Milan van der Heijden.
