Tanya St. Preux went into a store to pick up some stuff – and left with a newborn.

The Georgia woman was shopping this week at her neighborhood Target when she went into labor. Lucky for her, Caris Lockwood happened to be there at the same time. And, Lockwood is a labor and delivery nurse.

So, right by the store’s entrance, Lockwood put her experience to work. And, with an assist from Target employees, she delivered St. Preux’s baby: a healthy 7 lb. 10 oz boy.

“Caris was God-sent and amazing. She was sweet and caring and exceeded everyone’s expectations. She went way over far and beyond,” St. Preux said after the delivery, according to a statement from Piedmont Healthcare, the hospital where Lockwood works.

“We commend the nurses and medical staff, as well as the Target team members, who jumped in to help a woman who delivered a baby in a Target store in Georgia. We’re happy to hear that the mother and baby are doing well and wish them all the best,” said Target spokeswoman Jenna Reck in a statement to CNN.
