We all know the miracle of life is called a ‘miracle’ for a reason, but, have you ever imagined what it would be like to actually deliver a baby? And even more, to do that as just a 12-year-old? Well, a girl from Mississippi did not have to imagine anything – she really helped deliver her baby brother! Jacee Dellapena is just a 12-year-old girl who came into the delivery room to watch her brother being born, but she ended up delivering him.
Namely, the girl was so sad that she was too short to see anything from where she was standing, so she started crying, which made the doctor eventually let her join him and help deliver the baby. She scrubbed in and sat right there next to him. “I was like, wow. I’ve played fake doctor before, but this is the real thing, this is the real deal. I was really nervous,” the girl explained later how she felt. She added: “I actually delivered him, he let me actually push down and pull the baby out.”
Thanks to Nikki Smith, a family friend who captured these incredible moments, you can watch the photos of this unusual delivery below. Nikki posted the photos on Facebook with a description which says: “Meet Jacee! This 12-year-old helped deliver her baby brother and the emotions on her face are too amazing not to share. You’re a superstar Jacee!”
Not only did this girl help deliver her baby brother, but she was also the one to cut the cord and the first among the family members to hold him.
After these photographs went viral, Nikki only said: “This beautiful moment will always be remembered by both her mother and herself. Jacee was a rockstar and helped deliver a newborn. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t have when I was 12. Mother and baby are being discharged home and Jacee is ecstatic about the feedback she’s getting.”
