A month after having a set of twins on the side of Interstate 65, a Middle Tennessee mother met the emergency workers who helped deliver the babies for the first time Thursday afternoon.
Anne Howard was being driven to the hospital by her mother when the pair was pulled over by a Williamson County Sheriff's deputy for speeding.
The deputy called EMS for help. A crew less than a mile away responded. Within five minutes of their arrival, the twin girls were born.
During a reunion at Williamson Medical Center, Howard thanked the first responders and the deputy who pulled her over.
“I would have delivered the babies in the back of the van. He was probably the best thing that happened to us that night,” Howard said.
The babies, Brooklynn and Heidi, were perfectly healthy and weighed less than six pounds each.
They were scheduled to be born on March 4.
Mother and both babies are doing well.
Howard's mother was not ticketed for the incident.
