It’s hard for 10-year-old Jayden Fontenot to understand the enormity of his actions the day his mom went into labor early.
He was just doing what his mom told him when she went into premature labor and was bleeding profusely.
Ashly Moreau’s baby was in breech, her husband had left for work and his grandmother, who lived nearby, had just had back surgery and couldn’t walk. She called 911 while Jayden remained calm and did everything his mother told him.
This remarkable 10-year-old from Louisiana managed to turn the baby around and help deliver him on the bathroom floor of their home in Sulphur.
But when his baby brother came out, he wasn’t breathing. Jayden then grabbed a nasal aspirator, usually for his sister, and saved his brother’s life.
The 36-year-old mom-of-two told Jayden that he would have to deliver his brother quickly as the infant couldn’t breathe.
Jayden replied: “Tell me what I need to do and I’ll do it,”’ as per Today.
“I was crying, but I just tried to stay calm and collected,” Ashly said. “Jayden was so calm that it made me more calm. I could see he was scared, but he knew he had to do it.”
Her baby boy started breathing just as an ambulance arrived and mother and baby recovered well after their ordeal.
“Every time I think about it, I just cry,” Ashly said. “I don’t think Jayden understands what he’s done and how big it is.”
Jayden was honored at his school by the mayor and first responders from Sulphur for his bravery.
What an unbelievable boy Jayden is; he’ll always share a special bond with the brother he delivered and saved.
Please share to pay tribute to Jayden’s bravery.
