Natalie Robinette, 21, went into labor about three weeks early, at her Bel Air Drive home. Robinette's best friend called 911, and reached dispatcher Karen Bradford.

"She told me she needed to push and one of the instructions is to ask if she could see the baby's head and she said she could so I continued to read my instructions and told her what to do to catch the baby and she did everything I said exactly as I told her and she had the little baby," Bradford said.

Jovaline Robinette arrived at 8 pounds and 3 ounces. She and her mom are doing just fine.
