Midwife with broken fingers delivers baby in ER

From Becker’s:

On Thanksgiving morning, a woman seeking treatment for two broken fingers at St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash., where she’s worked as a midwife for 10 years, delivered a baby in the emergency room after a woman arrived in labor, according to The News Tribune.

Rhonda DiCostzano was awaiting X-ray results after breaking her fingers while participating in a triathlon on Thursday morning, when Jessica Morales rushed into the ER around 8:50 a.m.

“So I just went over there and said, ‘I’m a midwife. I can help,'” Ms. DiCostanzo told the Tribune.
