Mom delivers baby girl in car

Halifax Regional PoliceOn July 30th, 2009, at 10:50 pm a father and mother were on their way to the IWK when they realized they would not make it in time for the delivery of their baby.

They pulled into the Enfield Detachment looking for assistance.

RCMP members immediately called Emergency Health Services and the Enfield Fire Department to the Detachment.

Constables Stephane Racicot, Dan Pottie, Shawn Benoit and Glen Bond immediately went to the parking lot to provide assistance.

The mother, who was seated in the car, was having contractions that were less than one minute apart.

The officers realized the delivery would have to take place in the car and began preparations to deliver the baby.

The Enfield Volunteer Fire Department personnel arrived on scene under the supervision of O.I.C. Todd Pepperdine.

Volunteer Fireman Dale Copp assisted the mother in delivering a healthy baby girl at 11:05 pm.

Emergency Health Services arrived a short time later and transported mom and baby to the IWK where they were found to be in good health.

This is the second time a baby has been born at Enfield Detachment since it opened in 1992. In 1990, a baby was delivered in the Detachment’s lunch/meeting room.
