Congratulations to Marana Police Officer Vince Jenkins and his wife, Renae, on the birth of their healthy baby girl, Elena Lynn Jenkins! On the morning of April 29th, Renae began having contractions, so they contacted their Midwife at the Birth Center. They were told to go ahead and come in, but based on the time between contractions there was no reason to rush. While on their way to the Birth Center, Renae’s contractions began to increase significantly and her water broke. Within minutes, Renae told Vince, “The baby is coming right now.” The two of them were still several miles away from the Birth Center. Vince quickly pulled over into a parking lot. As soon as he stopped, it was apparent the baby was ready to be born. Vince utilized his first responder training from the police academy, and he assisted his wife in giving birth to their baby girl. The Tucson Fire Department arrived within minutes and examined Renae and the baby, who were both doing great and there were no complications. Mom, Dad, and Baby are all still doing great! Congratulations!
