KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
While working an off-duty security job at a local Walmart, a Kansas City police officer unexpectedly delivered a baby Saturday.
Marsheanna Clark was walking out of the Walmart at 4200 Blue Ridge Blvd. in Kansas City, MO, Saturday about 7 p.m. knowing her water had broken and she'd soon be having her baby. How soon, though, she would have never guessed.
"I've seen what doctors and nurses have done in that regard," Officer Matt Phelps said.
Phelps' baby-delivery skills were limited to what he's seen of his own four children when they were born.
"I worked on instinct and the limited first aid training I've had," he said.
When the seven-year Kansas City Police Department veteran got the call Saturday night while working off-duty security at Walmart that a woman was going into labor in the parking lot, he ran outside, pulled up a bench for Clark and did what he could.
"It happened so fast," she said. "I was in the line buying groceries and my water broke. So I was like, 'let me go outside and get some air.'"
Clark, 20, thought she had some time when the first labor symptoms started coming but, within five minutes of meeting Phelps, Marshayla Clark - at 6 pounds, 7 ounces - greeted her mom in the front entrance of Walmart.
"When it wants to come, it's just going to come," Clark said. "You can't do nothing, but go with the flow. I just had to push."
She said she didn't have any contractions that day and no real pain. She described it as one push and her baby was born.
"I'm still in shock like, 'no, I did not have my baby like that,'" Clark said.
The ambulance arrived about five minutes after Phelps delivered the child Saturday. Despite the dramatic birth story, mother and baby are doing well.
Phelps has worked as off-duty security at that Walmart for five years and said he mostly handles shoplifting cases there - never any baby deliveries.
Clark was 39 weeks pregnant and her due date was actually Thursday but, as many moms know, when your baby is ready to come, there's no stopping them.
We will have more with the mother, new baby and officer during KCTV5 News at 6 p.m.
