Canisha Owens was on the phone with 911 as she gave birth to a baby girl born two months premature.

Dispatcher: "What is going on?"
Caller: "Um, I'm in labor."
Dispatcher: "Ok let me get us on to the paramedics."

Owens was laying on her bathroom floor, her 6 year-old daughter Janeicea was by her side helping her mom deliver.

"I said she's not ok, she's panicking, she's panicking," said Janeicea.

Dispatcher: "How far apart are your contractions?"
Caller: "Back to back."

Owens gave birth before paramedics could get there.

"I saw her head and her hands, but she had blood all over her," said Janeicea.

Paramedics flew the 3 1/2 pound baby girl to the hospital. Owens and her mom rode in an ambulance.

"She remained calm, she remained focused on me and her sister, and I'm very proud of that," said Canisha Owens.

Janeicea has a bright future ahead of her. "I do want to be a doctor when I grow up," she said.

But she says she doesn't want to deliver anymore babies.

As for the baby she will be in the hospital for the next few weeks.
