Dad delivers baby with help from Flagler deputy and dispatcher

-
Newborn baby Jaxson Bowser is back home from the hospital with his family, but his journey didn't begin there. 
 
"I went back into the room to grab something and all of a sudden I just had like an enormous amount of pressure and I was like, you need to call 911, because this baby is coming out right now," said 25-year-old Brittany Bowser.
 
Her husband tried to pack up the car, but it was too late, baby Jaxson was on his way.
 
“I had to get myself somewhat together, and dialed 911 and got with the dispatcher and she helped me walk me through,” said Jason Bowser.
 
Deputies at the Flagler County Sheriff's office raced to the scene as the dispatcher gave instructions, and within minute, baby Jaxson was born, delivered by dad and deputy.
 
“Deputy Jennifer Prevatt jumped right in, literally, grabbed the baby as the baby was coming out of the mother,” said Jim Troiano of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
 
“The deputy came in and helped and I think we were both in shock, at that point and then we heard him cry so we knew he was okay,” Bowser said.
 
Mother and baby were taken to the hospital where baby Jaxson weighed in at 6 lbs.7 oz. 
 
"We couldn't have done it without all of our first responders and the deputies that were here involved -- the dispatcher," Bowser said.
 
As they bask in the light of their little bundle of joy, mom and dad say they couldn’t ask for more this Christmas.
 
"It's definitely a huge gift and blessing to our family and we're so so grateful and so excited for this journey," Bowser said.
