Surprise delivery at home for Fairfield woman

FAIRFIELD - A Fairfield woman is resting comfortable now that her newborn baby is safe and sound.

But it was anything but comfortable for Kendra D'Andrea when she woke up Thursday morning only to find she was in labor.

The mom-to-be says she was so far along, she wasn't able to go to the hospital. Instead, a Fairfield police officer helped bring little Annika into the world in D'Andrea's home.

D'Andrea says the officer made a big difference.

"He was great the whole time they were accessing her, dealing with the umbilical cord and kept checking up on me, asking me if I was OK."
