It was around 2:30 a.m. Monday when Blayne Guest's fiancée, Brianna Springer, woke up in pain.
"In the blink of an eye she went from it kind of hurts to unbearable," Guest said.
Citrus County Sheriff's Office Communication Officer Phillip Stuart was on the other end of the line when Guest called 911.
"We never normally get this far into the call when medical response shows up and kind of takes over for us,” Stuart said.
But the couple's son, Hudson, couldn't wait and was ready to be born at just 31 weeks. Stuart coached Guest along the whole way.
However, after Hudson was born there was a moment of panic when Guest realized he wasn’t crying.
"I thought, OK, when my last son was born I had noticed the doctors had to pull some stuff out of his throat, so I flipped him over on his tummy and started giving him light pats on his back to see if I can flush anything out,” Guest said.
It worked — Hudson soon started crying.
EMS arrived five minutes later and rushed Springer and Hudson to a hospital in Ocala.
Her second son, Rory, was delivered in the hospital, but doctors initially could not find a heartbeat. Luckily, they were able to revive him.
Springer said she owed it all to her fiancé.
"He was the strength I needed that night,” Springer said.
The couple said they were both beyond thankful for Stuart's help.
"Without him I wouldn't have been able to do anything that night," Guest said.
“We might have gone in the truck and rushed to the hospital. There’s so many things we could have done if he didn’t literally tell us you’re going to deliver that baby,” Springer added.
Stuart told us moments like this is what his job is all about.
"There's a lot of highs and lows with this type of industry and this type of call especially really makes it all worth while," he explained.
Both babies are still at the hospital since they were born so early. They expect for them to be there for the next 6-8 weeks.
