For most women, childbirth is an intimate process in which the husband (close relatives) and especially older children should not participate.
But US resident Catherine Cook thinks otherwise.
Not only did she decide to give birth with her partner, but she also wanted her ten-year-old daughter Kayla to be with her at the time.
By the way, the girl’s reaction and emotions amazed not only her mother, but also the doctors.
Carrying her third child, Catherine knew that her husband would certainly be present at the birth.
To capture such a responsible and unforgettable moment, she even invited a professional photographer.
However, Paulina Splechtu and her husband Cook weren’t the only loved ones to witness the birth of little Everly.
The doctors and photographer were concerned about the behavior of a 10-year-old child in such an unusual situation.
After all, childbirth itself is an unpredictable process, where even experienced fathers and doctors can panic.
But it went even better than they expected. During childbirth, Kayla behaved calmly, was with her mother all the time and supported her morally.
And at the most crucial moment (under the firm guidance of experienced doctors), she even personally helped her newborn sister get out of the womb.
Kayla wasn’t scared, but on the contrary, she was absolutely delighted when she saw her little sister for the first time.
And the emotions others saw on a 10-year-old girl’s face spoke for themselves.
At the very end, Kayla honestly burst into tears because of the feelings that overwhelmed her.
His emotions were incredible. “Before this, I had never seen (let alone photographed) anything like this,” writes the photographer.
