St. Louis-area police officer helps deliver baby boy on Mother’s Day | WGN Radio 720

SWANSEA, IL – A special Mother’s Day surprise for a family in Swansea, Illinois when they greeted a newborn baby. And it was a local policewoman who used her nurse background to give birth to the boy.

Christopher Tell, the Swansea fire chief, experienced something special on Sunday night responding to an ambulance service.

“The fire department responded with the Swansea Police Department to a report about a woman who may have been in labor,” he said.

It turned out that it was her.

“Local police said the woman was in active labor and that the baby was coming,” Tell said.

A Facebook post from the Swansea Police Department said officers Jader and Huff were the first to arrive, followed by the fire department and Abbott EMS.

Based on Officer Huff’s experience in nursing school, she noticed a significant prolapse of the mother’s bladder and began teaching the mother.

“She gave the mother very professional support in giving birth to the child at home,” said Tell.

The fire chief said it was amazing to see Huff in action as they all greeted Baby Judah.

“We could hear the mother screaming a little because of the location of the bathroom,” said Tell. “I went in and the mother had already given birth to a healthy boy. Everyone seemed to be fine. “

The Swansea Fire Department and Police Department work very closely together. Fire chief Tell said Officer Huff did an excellent job and he was glad to have someone like her in her community.

“She is very professional and can be passed on very quickly if necessary,” he said.

Officer Huff later contacted the hospital to confirm the mother and baby are fine – and it is.
