2-year-old helps mom in unexpected birth
2-year-old helps mom in unexpected birth


OLIVE BRANCH, Miss., Nov. 18 (UPI) -- A 2-year-old Mississippi boy provided valuable assistance in the unexpected birth of his baby brother, the boy's mother says.

The toddler, Jeremiha Taylor of Olive Branch, Miss., caught the new baby as his mother, Bobbye Favazza, 27, pushed while giving birth on her living room couch last week, The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported Wednesday.

"He's my little hero," Favazza, 27, told the newspaper. "It was like he knew what to do."

While Jeremiha's 3-year-old brother cried when Favazza's water broke and she started bleeding, the 2-year-old was calm.

"I laid on the couch and he went and got a towel," Favazza told the newspaper. "He grabbed a towel on his own. It happened so fast. My water broke and the baby came two to three minutes later. I just pushed and he caught him."

6. As a former childbirth instructor,
I LOVE this! My kids grew up watching birth films, and with placentas occasionally in the freezer (no--NOT to eat--to show to students), and were completely at ease with birthing...

8. Unexpected birth? Doesn't she know she had time to
give a speech, board a plane, fly to Alaska, drive to the hospital of her choice AND THEN GIVE BIRTH? Silly woman.

10. No, silly. That would only happen if her teenage daughter
actually had the baby. True multiparous women do deliver rapidly after the water breaks.
