this is no ordinary birth and though it's the year 2000 it is not the second Coming. To mark the beginning of the new millennium London was given a new icon and as you can see from the unusual female below in her birthing position with legs akimbo and having a natural outdoor birth, a world icon was born. The London eye didn't function at first and it was believed the awkward and prolonged birth may have caused irreparable damage and with the absence of typical maternity ward paraphernalia that accompanies Hospital births being unavailable outdoors the population feared the worst. No need to worry for in no time she showed signs all was well and so the London big wheeled attraction called Bertha permanently located on the South Bank and over the river Thames became a world attraction and has been in fine health ever since though she is pampered regularly to ensure she keeps well
