Officer Helps Deliver Baby

OSKALOOSA, Iowa (AP) -- A police officer arrived just in time to help an Oskaloosa woman deliver her baby.
   Amanda and Daniel Birch called 911 about 2:40 a.m. Friday after deciding that what she was feeling wasn't false labor.
   Officer Garrett Matson was the first to arrive -- and just in time.
   Matson says he gave Amanda Birch some encouragement, "and then I got to catch the baby as it came out." He soon gave the baby to her mother.
   Matson says he was relieved when the baby started crying, "and then I was really relieved when the paramedics arrived, because they had more medical equipment than I had."
   Little Opal Anne Birch weighed in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces.
