It’s not unusual for a grocery store to have an early-morning delivery.

But there was nothing routine about this one!

A Belleville police officer stopped a woman for speeding on North Front Street, at about 4:30 this morning.

It turns out there was a reason the woman was in a hurry… she was in labour!

With the help of the officer, the Stirling woman delivered a baby boy on the side of the road, right outside the Metro grocery store.

Both mom and baby are doing fine.

They were both transported to hospital.

The mom named her baby Dakota.

That'll teach the officer to stop speeding drivers.

I can't imagine the sense of urgency she felt... Well I sort of can, having had 2 kids (well, being present while my WIFE had them but...)

We had a woman give birth in a car last year... they were stuck in traffic or something, on the 101 in Phoenix if I remember correctly. I think the husband delivered that one.

I imagine its like that moment where you need the toilet and are not quite sure if you are going to make it or not

going into labor is a terrible reason to speed. Call an ambulance if you need to be there that fast. What if she hadn't got pulled over and her baby and her died.
