Heard the call on PD reporting enroute after delivering baby..Awww
t was one of two unexpected home births to take place in the region this week. Bridgeport spokeswoman Elaine Ficarra said city firefighters received a call at 2:27 p.m. Friday for trouble breathing, which turned out to be a woman in labor. When firefighters arrived at the Yale Street address, Yolanda Matteo, the mom-to-be, was already in the process of delivering her baby girl. The firefighters aided in the baby's birth and mother and child were taken to Bridgeport Hospital, where Schenker and her baby also were eventually taken...

"An unplanned home delivery is risky and something that we don't like when it happens," he said.

Fortunately, both the Trumbull and Bridgeport deliveries went fairly smoothly.

Bridgeport Fire Engine 3 responded to the call about Matteo. Captain Richard D'Onofrio, who is in charge of Engine 3, said firefighters Marcus Dierna and David Gasso did the bulk of the delivery, though he and driver Michael Dinately also assisted. D'Onofrio said many of the mother's relatives were present when they arrived, eagerly awaiting the little girl's arrival. The child apparently wasn't supposed to be born for another four days.

"It happened very fast," D'Onofrio said. "And it went very smoothly. We're just pleased that mother and baby were happy and healthy.
