An emotional set of photographs have captured the moment a 12-year-old girl helped to deliver her baby brother in what she says was the "best moment of my life".

Jacee Dellapena had started crying in the hospital room when she feared she was too short to see the birth.



But she didn't expect the doctor to allow her to put some scrubs on and deliver her mum's new baby herself.

Despite her mum Dede Carraway's initial hesitation, she agreed to the latest birth plan when she saw how excited her daughter was about the idea.

The doctor guided Jacee's hands throughout the entire procedure, while the father captured the amazing moment on camera in the hospital room in Mississippi.

The 12-year-old told MS News Now: "I actually delivered him, he let me actually push down and pull the baby out.

"I was like, wow, I've played fake doctor before, but this is, like, the real thing, this is is the real deal. I was really nervous."

Jacee even got to cut the umbilical cord as her sibling Cayson Carraway arrived into the world.

"It was the best moment of my life," Jacee added.

Her mum said seeing the emotion on her girl's face made her want to cry.

She said it really was a moment they will never forget.

After being shared on Facebook, the photos have gone viral with people leaving supportive comments about the "beautiful moment".

Tiffany Nene Fournier wrote: "I helped deliver my niece when I was 14. It inspired me! I'm now 21 and in college to become a midwife."

Nicole R. Trout added: "Incredibly brave. And she will always feel so connected to her sibling."

Another Facebook user said: "Wow, had me in tears. The look on her face is priceless.

"This is a moment she will never forget. Blessings to you all and much love."
