Mom Thankful After Giving Birth To Twins Along Interstate

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN, Tenn. – First responders in Williamson County were given a big "thank you" on Thursday for helping with the birth of two babies along Interstate 65.

Heidi and Brooklyn were born late last month along I-65 between Moore's Lane and Concord Road. The babies' grandmother was driving her daughter, Anne Howard, to the hospital around 1:30 a.m. on February 28.  

That's when she was pulled over for speeding by Williamson County Sheriff's Deputy Ray Dilworth. The deputy quickly realized what was going on and within minutes, paramedics were at the scene to help out.

On Thursday, Howard personally thanked everyone involved in the successul delivery of her twins. A news conference was held at Williamson Medical Center in Franklin exactly one month after the birth.

"I remember very vividly looking over at Michael (one of the paramedics) and he was holding one of the babies and he was smiling from ear-to-ear, and I thought he is so happy and he loves my baby," said Howard.

Howard saif the girls are healthy and doing well. Her mother was not ticketed for speeding. The babies were born through natural child birth, which Howard said she was not expecting and would not want to do again.
