12-Year-Old Boy Delivers Baby Brother, Is Probably Scarred For Life

Things a 12-year-old boy should not have to see up-close: his mother’s vagina, specifically his mother’s vagina while giving birth. Gaelen Edwards saw stuff that most boys his age have never seen. When his mother Danielle started crowning, he had no choice but to delivered his baby brother, Caynan, at home. “I said, ‘Gaelan, when I push next, I need you to grab the baby by the shoulders and I need you to pull him out.’ And he — just like by instinct, I couldn’t even believe it — grabbed the baby by the shoulders, with the head on his wrist, and eased him out, kind of wriggled him from side to side, and pulled him onto the bed,” said Danielle. Good thing Gaelen had been reading all those medical books and watching hospital dramas in his spare time. As if the delivery wasn’t enough, the brave child found it within himself to cut the umbilical cord and deal with the placenta. “It was gross when I cut the cord cause when I cut it, blood was squirting out,” Gaelan explained. Sure, he seems calm enough. He may think he wants to be a doctor. But we suspect there will be many years of therapy in his future. [KSDK]
