Helen Wilder was the midwife at Weatherfield General who delivered Simon Barlow. Ciaran McCarthy, waiting in casualty after a punch-up at the Weatherfield Arms, saw mother Lucy Richards at reception and rang the baby's estranged father, Peter Barlow, to tell him that he was about to become a dad. Lucy at first refused him entry to the delivery room but as her contractions became worse, she told Helen that he could be allowed in. Peter was present throughout the birth which was overseen by Helen.
