WESTPORT, CT (WFSB) -

The people who helped deliver a baby in a Westport home officially met her on Thursday.

On Friday, audio from 911 calls were released and helped illustrate how first responders helped bring baby Mila into the world.

“This is a once in a career opportunity for our guys,” said Lt. Eric Woods.  “I could not be happier for them, but even more excited for the family.”  

Police said they, along with emergency medical personnel and firefighters, were called to a home around 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday.

Kate Procaccini, Mila's mother, was found in an upstairs bedroom in labor with the birth of her daughter imminent.

The baby was born within minutes thanks to first responders.

Both Kate Procaccini and Mila were taken to Norwalk Hospital and are OK.

Friday, first responders presented the family with a gift.

“I just wanted to thank you all for everything you did," said John Procaccini, Mila's father. "This is the stuff that goes above and beyond typical duties. We are beyond grateful.”

Mother and daughter were said to be healthy and happy.
