TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- When a Topeka woman went into labor three months early, her mother was there to deliver the baby.

Forty-two-year-old Dorothy Robinson admits that she thought little of it when her 19-year-old daughter, La'Trese Robinson, complained of pain Thursday morning. After all, she was just 28 weeks along.

But The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://is.gd/YkeNiV) reports that everything changed when La'Trese Robinson's water broke.

Dorothy Robinson called 911, and a dispatcher walked her through the delivery while an ambulance rushed to the family's home.

La'Trese Robinson was released from the hospital Saturday. Her baby, Angelina, is expected to remain in the Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for a couple of months. She weighs 2 pounds, 7 ounces and is doing well.
