JPSO deputy helps deliver baby Saturday morning; has baby named after her

JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A Jefferson Parish Deputy, who responded to a 911 call of a woman in labor, helped deliver the baby. The delivery was made Saturday, just after 9 a.m. at an apartment in the 1600 block of Gary Court in Terrytown. 

Police say that Deputy Emily Brisner arrived on scene and helped the 33-year-old woman who was just beginning to deliver the baby. Brisner realized the sense of urgency and began to assist in delivering the baby. 

The mother of the newly-born child was so thankful of Deputy Brisner's help, that she named the baby Emily Victoria, after the officer who helped her. She named the baby Emily despite already having a named picked out. 

According to police, the 7-pound 6-ounce baby and her mother were transported to West Jefferson General Hospital. Both mother and baby are in good health.
