Mother of the Bride Helps Deliver Passer by’s Baby
It all began when Ben Sherwood of New Berlin was driving his wife Kimberley to the hospital well into labor. She could sense that the baby was coming out and in desperation the couple flagged down a police officer near Milwaukee Art Museum for help.
It turned out the officer was as terrified with the situation as Ben and he then turned to a nearby wedding party for help. The father-to-be kept calling for a doctor and it was this distress call that Anette answered.
A moment that was followed up by a crowd of cheers from not one but two wedding parties.
"I turned around and there's a bride there and I just had this inquisitive look," said Ben. So the bride explained that it was her mother who just caught the baby.
With the day’s adventure ending with a wedding and a birth, Anette summarized the events best - The Sherwoods had a son and she gained a wonderful son-in-law. - Atula, Staff Writer
