An off-duty Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer was directing traffic Thursday at a school when someone frantically waved at her for help, the department posted on Facebook.
That’s when Brennan saw a woman in labor in the back seat of a car.
“Officer Brennan immediately sprang into action putting on gloves and instructed the mother-to-be to push,” according to the CMPD Facebook post. “After one push the baby arrived.”
"[Brennan] wrapped the newborn baby in a blanket and placed the baby on the mother’s chest for skin-to-skin contact. The baby let out a cry," the department reported
When asked how and why she took action to deliver the baby, Officer Brennan replied, “I am a mother. I have children too. I am glad I was there at the right time to help.”
