A Fauquier 911 dispatcher Friday got to meet the baby she helped deliver via telephone earlier this week.

About three hours into her shift Monday morning, Emergency Communication Specialist Kim Malloy answered an exciting phone call.

Cheryl Rupp told Ms. Malloy that her grandson had begun to emerge from the womb at home in Remington.

At 9:50 a.m., Ms. Malloy quickly coached Ms. Rupp and her daughter, Crystal Gore, on how to deliver the baby.

Five minutes later, just before medics arrived, Asher came into this world at 9 pounds, 12 ounces and 21-½ inches long.

“I’m extremely grateful for everyone,” Ms. Gore said Friday during a visit to the emergency communications center in Warrenton. “It definitely did not go the way I planned.”

To Ms. Malloy she said: “Thank you for taking the call . . . .

“It went so quickly,” Ms. Gore said. “I was in disbelief because it happened so fast. The water broke as his head was coming out.”

Her mother told Ms. Molloy, “You kept me calm.”

For his part, 4-day-old Asher snoozed through most of the dispatch center visit.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met the other side of a 911 call,” said Ms. Malloy, 26.

Ms. Gore recalled feeling fine when she woke up Monday, her “due date.” She planned to have the baby at Reston Hospital, but Asher had another idea.

An ambulance crew took the mother and baby to Fauquier Hospital for a checkup after the birth.

Asher has two older siblings, Logan, 12, and Hailey, 5. Their father, Bobby Gore works as an associate pastor at Monterey Church near New Baltimore.

The family moved to Remington last month.
