This nurse delivered a customer’s baby outside of a Georgia Target


A nurse's trip to Target took an unexpected turn earlier this week when she noticed that a customer was going into labor.

Caris Lockwood, 24, was shopping at a Target in Atlanta, Georgia when her mother noticed a woman going into labor. Lockwood, a labor and delivery nurse at Piedmont Healthcare, began to help 30-year-old Tanya Saint Preux Picault.

Picault said she began feeling contractions after she used the store's restroom, according to ABC News. Twenty minutes later, Lockwood helped Picault give birth to her fourth child outside of the store. The baby, who was named Maleek, weighed 7 pounds, 10 ounces.

Later on, Target issued a statement on the incident.

"We commend the nurses and medical staff as well as the Target team members who jumped in to help a woman who delivered a baby in a Target store in Georgia," a spokesperson for Target told ABC News. "We're happy to hear that the mother and baby are doing well and wish them all the best."

Picault said she was grateful for the Lockwood's help.

"God had her there for me that day," Picault said. "She did such a great job. It was on the news, and I recorded it so I can show [Maleek] as he gets older."

Piedmont Healthcare posted a picture of Lockwood and Picault on Facebook Monday.
