It is a big moment for a mother and father to have a baby. It’s monumental for the family as both mom and dad get to be a part of the birthing process.

When mothers have babies after already having a child, they want to make sure that their firstborn is involved in all aspects of the process.


Moms know that their other children feel the same way when they have a baby.

Many mothers want to make sure that their other children feel included in the process of the delivery of their new baby sibling.


It’s important to make them feel like they’re not left out.

Parents want to make sure that their other children are taken care of when a new baby arrives in the family. Older siblings need the attention and love of their parents.


Mostly, older siblings wait in the waiting room when their mom is in labor.

During labor and delivery, most older siblings stay outside and wait until the delivery is done to see their new baby sibling. One mom changed the norm and had her daughter in the room as well.


A mom had her daughter become a part of that special day.

Dede Carraway and her husband told their daughter that they were expecting a baby. She was excited to have a sibling in her family.


In school, she learned about labor and delivery.

In school and health class, she learned a lot about labor and delivery. Her mom allowed her to be in the room for that special moment.


The OBGYN allowed her to get involved once he realized that she was invested in the delivery.

The doctor told Jacee to come and help him deliver her brother. With the help of their doctor, Jacee put on scrubs and gloves.


The doctor let Dede’s daughter be involved.

“I couldn’t believe it. I was like, what? Uh, no. Never in a million years. But the doctor said, ‘I’m being serious. I’ll guide her hands and everything.’ So she got up in there and was suddenly in the middle of everything,” Dede told Shareably.


She made sure to catch her brother.

Jacee was very careful to make sure that her hands were stable as she prepared to catch her brother. The excitement on her face is clear. This is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Dede didn’t have a question about letting her daughter in the room.

“She’s already had sex ed at school. I didn’t see any reason why she shouldn’t be there. I don’t hide anything from her and I think that the human body is natural and if she learned about it at school, there’s no reason why she shouldn’t learn about it at home, too. Seeing the emotions on her face, it was worth it,” the mom shared.


Some people thought it was too much.

Many people commented on Facebook that this was too much for a child to see and that it could cause some trauma. It was inappropriate for her to be in the room so close to it.


Many people said that it was inspiring.

Many people felt that this would allow brother and sister to grow up with an incredibly close bond. They applauded the parents and the sister for making this decision and wished them good fortune.
