According to NBC affiliate KSDK, a 10-year-old girl assisted her mother in delivering a baby at home.
Miracle Moore’s mom went into labor 3 weeks before due at their Jennings, Missouri home.
The little girl dialled 911 and followed the dispatcher’s instructions to safely deliver her little sister.
KSDK, NBC News affiliate reported that a 10-year old girl helped her mother have a home birth with the help of a 911 operator.
Miracle Moore’s mother, Miracle Moore, went into labor three days early at their Jennings, Missouri home on October 22. Her daughter called 911 to inform her that she couldn’t get to the hospital in good time.
Miracle said to the dispatcher, “Hi, I think that my mom is in labor,” KSDK reported.
Scott Stranghoener was the dispatcher. He gave Moore instructions which she repeated to her mother. According to the news outlet it lasted for nearly 11 minutes.
KSDK reported that the child could be heard calling out to Mama, saying “Don’t sit on the potty” and “Mama said you should lie down in the middle of the bed. Her screams can also be heard in background.
Moore stated to the dispatcher that she was coming at one point. She’s coming! She’s here! … Her head is here!”
The dispatcher instructed Moore to wipe her little sister’s nose and mouth with a soft cloth after delivering the baby. He also advised Moore not to drop the baby. KSDK reported.
Paramedics arrived to transport the baby and her mother into a hospital. Both mother and baby were both healthy.
KSDK later heard from Stranghoener: “I quickly learned that we were in a very serious situation. We have protocols we follow. She followed them all to the letter and did an incredible job.
Moore’s mother shared with KSDK that she was thankful for her daughter’s presence. “It was definitely miraculous because once I had the baby I couldn’t really grab and pick up her. But then Miracle came and wrapped her up in a towel.
She wiped her face and gave her a gentle rub to her back so she could start to cry.
KSDK heard from the fourth grader, who said she was “scared” during labor but that she wants to be a doctor when growing up.
