9-Year-Old Girl helps her Mum deliver baby as she goes into labour
A 9-year-old girl identified as Aakayla Gunn has warmed the hearts of many after successfully helping her nurse mother who went into an early labour to deliver a child.
Gunn was at home with her mother who is a nurse at St.Luke’s South Hospital. Her mother went into labour, a week earlier than the expected delivery date.
According to a report by PIX11.com, the young girl helped her mother deliver as the latter coached her on what to do and how to do it.
The girl’s father said:
“We may have a doctor on our hands. Already delivering babies at 9! Let’s go, Aakayla!”
The young girl helped deliver her baby sister Aubree Rose who was 3.2kg Aakayla said: “It was fun. She looked really pretty.”
Her mother Angelica Gunn started feeling contractions. She called her husband to rush home, but Caleb got stuck in traffic. The mum said: “I screamed for Aakayla to come in, I was just like, ‘You have to look.
Something’s happening. Is her head coming out?’ And she’s like, ‘I can’t look.’ And I’m like, ‘You have to,.” However, with two pushes, her baby girl came out and Aakayla caught her.
She then asked her to go get the towel and asked her to hold her baby sister softly and bring the child to her.
