    While finishing a shift in the East Tower, Sabrina heard a scream from the women’s restroom. To her surprise, Sabrina discovered a woman inside giving birth, prompting her to alert the UMC medical staff immediately. With the baby on its way, Sabrina calmed the birthing mother and protected the baby as it was delivered, resulting in the best possible outcome.
