Megan Warfield is a firefighter in Baltimore County, MD. Just a week or so shy of her due date, Megan had just finished organizing and hosting her late father's 2nd annual memorial golf tournament when she was involved in a significant motor vehicle collision.

Ignoring any chance she could be injured, Megan immediately exited her mangled vehicle and began providing care to a person trapped by their overturned car.

"I started to climb in there with her, but then I was like, 'What are you doing? You're nine months pregnant'," Warfield told TODAY Parents. "I ended up holding onto her to keep her in place because I wasn't sure of her injuries at the time."

Megan stayed with this patient until first responders arrived to free the victim.

Less then 24 hours later, Megan delivered her beautiful baby girl.

"Since no good deed should go unrecognized, we wanted to highlight Megan's heroic and selfless actions," the local fire department wrote on Facebook. "Congratulations Momma Megan, Job Well Done!"

All injuries were non life-threatening.
