A Henrico family is thanking a crew of firefighters for their quick response in helping deliver their baby girl. Aly Elliott, a Mother-Infants Nurse at VCU, woke up on April 19 to stomach pains. "At one point [Chris asked] could this be contractions and I said no, this is more like spasmodic stomach pains," Aly said. Thinking it was a simple ache she hopped in the shower, only to realize those pains were something quite different. “I went down on my hands and my knees,” Aly said. “I was just involuntarily pushing and that’s when I called Chris up and I knew we were too late.” “I said ‘hey, let’s get you to the hospital and she said I’m not moving!’” said Aly’s husband, Chris. “So, I was like, ‘okay, great.’” Chris called 911 and soon enough Henrico firefighters from Station 13 arrived at their home.
