Officer Peterson, Rebecca and little Olivia

One Montclair mama delivered a beautiful baby girl at home with the assistance of Montclair police officer Erica Peterson.

On the morning of December 3, Rebecca Williford-Brock was in labor and it was happening fast. Montclair police were dispatched to her apartment on Valley Road. Patrolwoman Erica Peterson, a five year member of the Montclair Police Department, arrived at the apartment and was directed into the bedroom by Rebecca’s mom.

Once in the bedroom, Officer Peterson assisted Rebecca Williford-Brock in delivering the baby. Officer Peterson cleared the baby’s airway and tended to her and Mrs. Williford-Brock until members of the Montclair Volunteer Ambulance Squad and Medics arrived on scene.

Mrs. Williford-Brock and the child were then transported to Mountainside Hospital for treatment. The baby girl, named Olivia Lyvon Brock, weighed six pounds, five ounces and was 19 ½ inches long. Mrs. Williford-Brock reports that both she and Olivia are in good health.

Christie's political career is finished and quite frankly, the state of New Jersey is so over him and his big mouth bully tactics that we're all wishing his replacement was part of the Nov 8 election. Hooking his caboose to the disastrous Trump campaign is his only option.
