10-Year-Old Delivers His Mom’s Baby, Saves His Brother’s Life
Ashly Moreau went into labor at her home in Sulphur, Louisiana last Friday. She was only 34 weeks pregnant, so the baby was a few weeks premature.
The baby was also breech, so Ashly was in trouble. The only other person there was her 10-year-old son Jayden, luckily he's a pretty amazing dude.
First he ran next door to his grandmother's house and had her call 911. For whatever reason she couldn't get to their house to help.
So Jayden ran back to his mom who was still conscious. But she was bleeding out on their bathroom floor by that point, and the baby still hadn't been born.
Jayden took a deep breath and asked her what to do. She told him he needed to pull the baby out by its legs and he did!
The baby wasn't breathing, so Jayden got a nasal aspirator to clear its airway, and saved its life.
Paramedics came and got Ashly and Jayden's new baby brother to a hospital, and they're both doing great now. Her doctors say that if Jayden hadn't been there, neither of them would have made it.
