Allina Health EMS dispatcher meets baby he helped deliver

[KMSP Fox 9, Feb. 18, 2018] Two months after Hannah and Taylor Lindeman welcomed their third daughter, Poppy Noel, into the world, the proud parents finally got a chance to introduce her to the man who helped coach them through the roadside delivery.

It was Christmas day on the side of Highway 8 in Chisago County, Minn., and Poppy had no intentions of waiting until the family arrived at the hospital.

“Hey, Poppy. Two months already huh?” said Allina Health EMS dispatcher Jake Prager Sunday afternoon. It was his first time meeting the baby in person after talking the Lindemans through every step of her birth by phone.

KARE 11, KSTP-TV and WCCO-TV also covered the story.
