Nine-Year-Old Delivers Mother's Baby!

Kidmazing: Child Delivers Mother's Baby!

Doctor Jaidan, medicine girl! Valerie Lujan was seven months pregnant and at home with her daughter, Jaidan, when she went into labor. The nine-year-old stayed calm and acted quickly to deliver her little brother. Following the directions of a 911 operator, the child tied off the umbilical cord and massaged the newborn until emergency medical workers arrived. Both the mother and newborn are fine.
