Finally tonight, "America strong." Two weeks before her due date, Wisconsin resident Rachel wankowski felt something big could be happening, so she scrambled to get her husband, Justin. She texts me downstairs at 5:15 telling me she needs help, they're getting bad. Reporter: Rachel's contractions coming on strong, and Justin jumping into action. 911, where is your emergency? My wife went into labor, and we need to get to the hospital and I'm kind of panicking. Reporter: The 911 dispatcher helping out. Stay on the line in case we need to deliver this baby before we get there. It was just going quick. Everything started escalating. Reporter: Justin keeping his calm as his wife's labor progressed. Dad, you got breathe too, though. I know. Reporter: Ems finally arrives. Even though these first responders have more than 20 years of experience each, they never delivered a baby. Starting to come out. Come on, come on. Reporter: Ten minutes after the start of the 911 call, raelynn is born, weighing in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces. Just joy and grateful that she's breathing. I'm going to tear up now just thinking about it. But, you know, just happy. Reporter: And just this week, baby raelynn meeting those first responders. Childbirth is a miracle, and to be able to be there, I feel very honored. Makes your heart happy to be able to see it to the end and be able to make a difference for somebody. Great teamwork all around.
