Officer and school staff deliver baby at school
MIRAMAR, Fla. (WSVN) -- A mother picking up her daughter from school goes into labor in the school office.
School Resource Officer Natasha Richardson and health technician Deonse Robertson have a reason to celebrate. "Me being a mom I guess my mommy instincts kicked in and just went with it," Richardson.
Richardson and Robertson delivered a baby at Faryway Elementary School in Miramar on Thursday. "This is my first time delivering a baby," said Richardson. "This is probably the most blessed and exciting thing I've ever done."
Officer Richardson said she was making her routine walks around the school when a mother came to pick up her child. Moments later, the mom started to have contractions. Both Richardson and Robertson went into action.
The mother and her newborn baby, Maybelle Colin Sainvilus, were transported to the hospital.
Doctors say Maybelle is doing great thanks to the quick thinking school staff.
"We helped each other. It was team work to keep calm," said Robertson.
