This 12-Year-Old Scrubbed Up And Delivered Her Baby Brother

And they say kids these days are only interested in their cell phones!

A few years ago, when Jacee Dellapena was told she was too young to attend the delivery of her brother, Zadyn, she was disappointed. But when her mom gave birth to her newest brother, Cayson, she more than made up for things.  

The 12-year-old was originally planning to stay near her mother's head during delivery, but the Mississippi tween was invited to join the doctor delivering her brother, after complaining that she couldn't see what was going on. 

With the help of a doctor, Jacee helped to deliver Cayson, and even cut the umbilical cord. 

“I actually, like delivered him, like, he let me actually push down and pull the baby out," said Jacee to MS News Now.

“I was like, “Wow, like I've played fake doctor before”, but this is, like, the real thing, this is the real deal.”

The 12-year-old added, "It was the best moment of my life."

Jacee scrubbed and gloved up ready for delivery

Cayson is the family's last born child, but judging by Jacee's excitement and enthusiasm for the delivery, a future in midwifery may beckon.

Her father, Zack, was able to capture the moment on camera, as Dr. Wolfe guided Jacee through the delivery process. The pictures went viral after they were shared and liked on the proud father's Facebook.
