12-Year-Old Helps Deliver Her Baby Brother

It's rare to find a teen or tween who even wants to be at the hospital while their mom gives birth to a new family member, much less hang out in the delivery room.But 12-year-old Jacee Dellapena wanted to attend the birth of her new baby brother Zadyn, so her parents allowed her to be in the delivery room while her mom Dede gave birth.
Then Dede's obstetrician Dr. Walter Wolfe suggested Jacee should suit up and help him deliver Zadyn, a suggestion she was surprisingly excited about.
And with her parents' wholehearted approval Jacee stepped up and helped bring Zadyn into this world, which will forever give her the upper hand in arguments with her little brother!
"... My doctor, Dr Walter Wolfe then suggested, 'Jacee why don't you suit up and come deliver the baby.' I was in shock lol! I told her as long as Zack doesn't care go ahead and he said 'go for it Jacee!' She got suited up for delivery. Although the pain from the contractions and the pushing hurt me so bad... watching Jacee's expressions on her face were like no other. Concentrating on her face while I pushed helped me so much! Dr Wolfe actually put her hands on the inside of his and allowed her to do the entire delivery. We were all very emotional and it was like no feeling I've ever felt. it's not every day your eldest child at 12 years old gets to deliver your last child."
 Hail to everyone involved - the girl, the parents, and the medical team.  More children need to be exposed to the realities of birth and death (and preparing food) (especially if the wingnuts are successful in cutting health care financing).
There are more details and photos are available Here and Here.
