The Walmart at Sunshine and West Bypass in Springfield Missouri was a buzz after a mom’s water broke while she was shopping.
Store manager Jessica Hinkle told the news reporters, “We were like oh my gosh, is this actually going to happen.”
The woman, she revealed, warned store associates that her last child came in just 30 minutes.
“We were like what do we do now?” she said. “Another lady comes around the corner and she says ‘I’m a labor nurse, can I help?’ and we said yes, yes please. She had gloves in her pocket [and] she was ready.”
Jessica blocked off the aisle with a sheet to give the woman as much privacy as possible.
Shortly after, Springfield firefighters arrived and helped deliver the baby girl.
“They took her out on the gurney, there were customers of course gathered [and] she kind of raised her hand, everyone clapped for her,” Hinkle said.
With everything that is happening in the world, the event was the good news everyone needed.
“You know a feel-good moment, everybody’s going through so much and with a baby it’s like everything comes full circle,” she said.
Hinkle said both mom and baby are doing well.
