BUTLER COUNTY, OH (WCMH) — Staff at the Butler County Jail helped deliver a baby girl at the facility, Monday.
According to a release from the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, staff were preparing to take an inmate to an area medical facility to be checked when she went into labor.
Corrections Officer Benjamin Stultz and jail medic Brandy Browder jumped into action delivering a baby girl. After the delivery, C.O. Stultz attended to the mother while medic Browder cared for the child until Hamilton Paramedics arrived on scene.
“It’s sad that children are being born in a correctional environment. We have a problem in this Country where children are often being born from addicted mothers. Today we are pleased Mother and daughter are safe and getting the care they need,” said Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones.
Jones says this is the third full delivery in the last five years at the Butler County Jail.
