Police have come under fire over how they treated Kim Dotcom's heavily pregnant wife when they raided the family's mansion in January.
The high court has heard how Mona Dotcom began suffering mild contractions during the raid but was unable to call for help as she had her cellphone taken by police.
Police confirmed they knew Mona was pregnant with twins and had discussed her welfare prior to the raid.
An ambulance was called and arrived 45 minutes later but Dotcom's lawyer, Paul Davison QC, told police their response was pathetic.
"I don't think it was a poor response at all Mr Davison, we're police officers not medical staff," Detective Sergeant Stephen Humphries said.
"If it was a medical emergency then clearly an ambulance was the appropriate response, not a police car.
"We're not trained or equipped to deal with medical emergencies," Humphries said.
The court was also told today the January 20 date of the raid was chosen because it coincided with Dotcom's birthday, and previously he had hosted many of the individuals of interest to the FBI at his house.
Further police witnesses are to give evidence at the judicial review of the case.
