Stepping into her significant role as a big sister, 10-Year-Old Miracle from Missouri helped her mother deliver her baby sister when she went into labor three weeks early.
On Oct. 23, Miracle’s mother advised her daughter to call 911, and when she did, dispatcher Scott Stranghoener responded.
“Hi, I think my mom is in labor,” Miracle told Stranghoener in a recorded 911 call, Inside Edition reports.
The 11-minute phone call aided the fourth grader in helping her mother and sister.
Miracle closely listened and repeated Stranghoener’s instructions to her mom advising her “Don’t sit on the toilet” and “Mama, they said lay on your back in the center of the bed or on the floor.”
“It’s OK, Mama, it’s OK!” Miracle comforted her mother through her pain. “I think her water broke,” she told Stranghoener.
“She’s coming! She’s coming!” Miracle yelled. “She’s here! … Her head is here.”
According to Christian Hospital EMS’S (CHEM) Facebook page, Stranghoener calmly assisted Miracle through steps to help her mother give birth to her baby sister safely at home. The baby was delivered without complications. Miracle soaked up the sister moment wiping her sister’s face, guiding her to cry for the first time, and keeping her warm until the ambulance came.
“Central County 911 is happy to share this amazing story about a little girl named Miracle and how she, with the help of our very own dispatcher Scott Stranghoener delivered her baby sister Jayla on October 23, 2022. Miracle was calm and attentive to every instruction provided! She is an amazing 10-year-old, to say the least,” the post explained.
“We are proud to work with such an awesome group of men and women. Christian Hospital EMS and North County Fire & Rescue are some of the best! What an honor to meet this beautiful family and recognize their daughter, Miracle. Great job done by all!” the message concluded.
The NCFR, CCE911, and CHEM authorities gifted Miracle with custom gear, trinkets, certificates, and more in honor of her bravery and maturity.
Miracle also received a stork pin, typically reserved for EMS providers delivering a baby.
