June 15:  We ofter hear about spouses helping their partners do deliver babies and to hold their hands. Well, recently here a sister was able to help deliver her baby brother. And you can imagine how amazing this experience was for her.

Yes, this 12 year old Jacee Dellapenna couldn't wait to meet her new brother and made the unusual decision to help with the baby's birth.


Now these pictures winning many hearts across the internet. 

Initially the girl was supposed to be present, but she wasn't going to take part in the actual procedure. According to Jacee's mother, Dede Carraway, the idea came from the family's "crazy doctor," who decided on the spot that Jacee could "catch" the infant.

While Jacee told her parents months ago about her desire to be in the hospital during the birth of her brother Cayson, the delivery assistance was suggested by the doctor. In the Facebook group Love What Matters, Dede opened up about what happened in the delivery room.

"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! 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 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."
