Constable Georgia started her work day last week not knowing she would end up helping someone in labour.
While driving south on SH1 in Ngauranga Gorge in peak-hour traffic, the policewoman spotted a man waving franctically at her.
His wife was in labour and the couple had been stuck in traffic since Porirua, trying to get to hospital.
Constable Georgia got the woman, Becca, into the back of the police car, and with lights flashing and sirens buzzing, made her way to hospital.

A couple of hours later, Becca gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Natalie.
New Zealand Police posted the "better work story" on Facebook and the reception was as heartwarming as expected.
The new mum, Becca Allen, commented on the post thanking Constable Georgia for her "calmness and awesome driving".
"What a wonderful story and a lovely ending. What a beautiful policewoman. Great memories make stories that get shared and enjoyed by many," a Facebook user commented.
"Nice to hear a positive news story. Well done New Zealand Police," someone else said.
The post went up earlier today and has already received more than 2600 likes.
Natalie's new favourite toy is the policy puppy, very appropriately named Georgia.
