Jacee Dellapena is a 12-year old girl living in Mississippi with her family. Recently, her mother went into labor and Jacee helped deliver her baby brother. Jacee has another brother and wanted to be there for his birth, but her parents decided she was too young.
This time around, they decided she could be there. Her mother says that if a child has had Sex Ed and understands the process, it is quite beautiful for him or her to be there at a sibling’s delivery. Jacee’s mom also says that having her there helped her get through labor and delivery.
The emotions on Jacee’s face have completely stolen the Internet. Congratulations to Jacee and her family at the arrival of this beautiful little baby boy!
“Jacee wanted to attend Zadyn’s birth 18 months ago but we felt she was too young to attend. So this pregnancy her dad and I discussed it and decided it might be a good learning experience for her!”
At the Hospital
“Jacee came to the hospital with my husband Zack and I around Noon. I received an epidural and made it through the next 8 hours with little to no pain. Around 8 PM the epidural wasn’t working so well, but I was able to start pushing.”
“They converted my bed and Jacee was so upset because she is so short… she thought she wasn’t going to be able to see the delivery over the bed.”
“My doctor, Dr. Walter Wolfe then suggested, ‘Jacee why don’t you suit up and come deliver the baby.’ I was in shock! I told her as long as Zack doesn’t care go ahead and he said ‘go for it Jacee!’”
Ready to Go
“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.”
Lots of Emotions
“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.”
