Patrolman Jardin Paulo M Galima and Corporal Kennent L. Cabanilla and other personnel of Villaverde Police on duty worked together to help the woman deliver her baby.

According to the report, the woman started to experience labor pain at around 6:00 a.m. as she is due for delivery this month.

Since the family owns only a motorcycle, the husband decided to bring his wife to the Philippine National Police Villaverde station to ask for assistance so his wife would be brought to the nearest hospital.

While about to leave for the hospital, the woman’s labor pains worsened inside the police patrol car, and Patrolman Galima, who is a registered nurse, noticed signs of impending delivery.

Galima and corporal Cabanilla and other personnel immediately assisted the mother who was giving birth. Moments later a healthy baby girl was born. The police later revealed the baby’s name is Jiselle Blythe Ordonia.

The mother and baby girl were brought to a birthing clinic for proper care.
