When a mother is about to deliver a baby, she should have the dearest people and the best medical facility to support her. But sometimes, during the emergency, pregnant women miss getting these facilities.
This woman missed it too but received a beautiful help from her kid. This is a fascinating story of a 3-year-old child helping in bringing her baby brother into the world.
Heidi was pregnant and unluckily she had to give birth during a blackout. There was only one paramedic available to assist her, so Heidi's 3-year-old daughter Kathleen had to hold the light during the operation.
As the delivery ended, Connor was successfully born into this world. The paramedic proceeded to spank the baby to make him cry, and she asked Kathleen how she felt when she was witnessing the birth of her sibling.
Kathleen's response was one for the books. She told the paramedic that Connor shouldn't have crawled into his mom in the first place. The 3-year-old then said that the boy should be spanked again.
Whether a baby is born inside a hospital or inside a home, people should be very careful about the whole delivery process. Moreover, a baby should receive immediate attention with regards to nutrition and proper rest.
You might be wondering why Connor was spanked early on. Well, actually this is no longer done by most people. However, it was believed back then that spanking the baby's butt allowed the child to take his first breath.
Yes people, you no longer need to spank your baby immediately after being born. Why? Because the air exposed to the baby upon birth is already enough to stimulate the child to have his/her first breath.
In addition, the baby's first breathing could be stimulated by the child's simple suction of fluid located in the oral cavity. See, you don't even have to hurt your baby anymore.
