Freehold Police Officer Helps Deliver Lakewood Couple’s Baby at Gas Station

A Freehold Police Officer helped deliver a Lakewood couple’s baby at a Freehold gas station this morning, TLS has learned. The parents were reportedly on their way to the Robert Wood Johnson hospital in New Brunswick at about 6:00 AM this morning, when they realized they were’nt going to make it there. So the couple phoned police and pulled into the nearest gas station.

Officer Frank Mount from the Freehold Police Department responded, Freehold Police tell TLS, and equipped with the necessary equipment, helped deliver the baby right there in the gas station.

Moments after delivering the girl, EMS arrived.

Police tell TLS that according to their knowledge everything went well, and that the three were transported to the hospital. TLS.

  1. m1 -“Bh worked out well for all I’m wondfering if the officer gets a check from the insurance company (as a delivery charge ) instead of the doc ?”

    Unfortunately the Doc gets his money no matter what. That’s the deal they make with patients. The question remains can PD/EMS now charge for medical assistance. And I guess this would fall into their policy of how they charge for any EMS call.

  2. Rabeini HaKudesh v’Hatuhor – Not sure where you davened yesterday, but the rest if leined that passuk last Shabbos. We leined Veeira yesterday.

  3. #11 – In all fairness to #6……..” just ” doesn’t have to mean yesterday. It could mean just recently….. which is what #6 actually means. I JUST thought I would point it out.

  4. If your so embaressed to have a baby, maybe u should cancel the shabbos kidish, shalom zachor, vacht nacht and have the bris in alaska somewhere

  5. Kudos to the officer. What if c”v cord around the neck or any other problem – what can you do on a gas station? Why not to choose a closer hospital (if possible)? Just wondering. How many Lakewood babies are born on a way to a hospital? Just wondering.

  6. Closer hospitals are not chosen because the doctors wont deliver in them…especially the “close” hospital that boasts such beautiful faciliies but no NICU. Its just irresponsible to assume one will not be needed and then be completely seperated from your baby should it need a transport. Some people need a high risk pregnancy specialist, which Robert Wood Johnson hospital has many and the town of Lakewood has none. Freehold and Route 9 is still a 20 minute drive from the nearest hospital…Jersey Shore…in this circumstance it was best to deliver when the baby was ready, rather than expect the mother to somehow wait until she got to the hospital.
    That being said, I still dont understand the lack of sensitivity to this couple. It is only sensational because of -where- it occurred, which I feel sways more toward being gossip than being news. I have happily hosted and attended many simchas surrounding the birth of babies…because that is appropriate and not potentially embarassing. There is no denial here, just sensitivity, which I am happily passing along to my children. They should not feel it is ok to say or do something that would be embarrassing to another person.
