It wasn't all bad

10-year-old helps his mother deliver baby at home

Just call him Dr. Jayden.

Jayden Fontenot, a quick-thinking 10-year-old, recently saved his newborn brother's life, keeping his cool the entire time. Ashley Moreau of Sulphur, Louisiana, had no idea she was in labor until she went to the bathroom and saw her baby was starting to come out, feet first. Her eldest son ran to his grandmother's house, called 911, then raced back to his mother, asking what he could to help. As gently as possible, Fontenot began to slowly pull at the baby's feet, "just hoping I didn't hurt him," he told ABC News. Fontenot was able to get the baby out, safely.

Had he not intervened, the baby would have died, doctors said, and it's possible Moreau could have bled out. "I'm just so proud of him," she told ABC News. "I don't think he understands how big this is. He saved me and his brother's life." Both Moreau and her newborn are doing well.
