Israeli Paramedic Delivers 3 Babies In 48 Hours


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli paramedic for Magen David Adom in the Tel Aviv area delivered three babies in 48 hours.

Issachar Weiss, 24, started at 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the suburb of Givatayim and arrived to find the baby crowning. He called on the mother to push and delivered the baby.

At about 5 a.m. Monday, Weiss was called to Bnei Brak to help a woman deliver her son after she failed to make it to the hospital on time. The same day at 5 p.m., he delivered a baby for a woman in the Hatikvah neighborhood of Tel Aviv.

Weiss said in a post on MDA’s Facebook page that he thinks this is a record for home deliveries for the emergency service.

“Birth at home is a very unusual thing. We don’t like to do it, but when happens and is successful it’s really fun,” he said. “Only for me it was times three in 48 hours. I am still so excited. ”

The Israeli Hebrew-language daily Yediot Acharonot published an article on its back page with the headline “HaSandak 3,” which is the person who holds a baby boy at his bris.
