CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Andy Cazeau, a Cambridge, Mass., police officer, was about to end his shift early on Monday morning when he received a call about a woman in labor according to Fox News.

He arrived at the house and directed the husband to get a bunch of towels – then he realized the baby’s head was starting to crown.

“I told the mother on the next contraction I want you to push as hard as you can,” he said, according to Boston 25. “The next contraction came, the baby came out, I guided the head out.”

Two more officers arrived shortly afterward.

Cazeau, who is also a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, said the experience of seeing his daughter born helped a lot.

He said he was able to hold the newborn, a girl. She is doing well at the hospital with mom.
