Miracle Moore is a fourth-grade student from Jennings, Missouri, who lives with her sister, Taylor, and mother, Viola Fair. The young girl was having a typical day when her mom went into labor three weeks before her due date.
Moore dialed 911 in response to her mom’s instructions, unaware that she would be the one assisting her mom in giving birth. Nobody imagined Moore to handle what occurred next so effectively.
When dispatcher Scott Stranghoener received Moore’s call on October 23, he had no clue how quickly things would change. She believes her mother is in labor, Moore said.
Stranghoener did not hang up on the little child while alerting first responders to the situation at Moore’s residence. Rather, he advised her on what she should do next to assist Fair in giving birth.
Moore followed Stranghoener’s directions and requested her mom to lie down on a level surface after leaving the door open for first responders. She was terrified, Moore said.
Fair fought to lie down on her back because she was in discomfort. Moore saw this and informed Stranghoener, who instructed her to lay towels behind her mom’s back for more help.
Moore was a small girl who had never been in a position like this before, but what she did to assist her mom was extraordinary. It’s all right, Mama, it’s all right, Moore informed her mom.
Moore informed her mom and Stranghorner about the impending birth of her younger sister. When the dispatcher informed Moore he’d instruct her how to deliver the baby, she responded, “Huh?”
Moore’s younger sister was born soon after, but Fair lacked the fortitude to pick her child. Moore grabbed a soft towel and carefully washed her tiny sister’s face before wrapping her up, as instructed by Stranghoener.
The first responders from Christian Hospital Emergency Medical Services and North County Fire & Rescue came to Fair’s house a few minutes after Jayla was born, and Moore led them into her mother’s bedroom. According to a paramedic, they just scooped up the baby first thing in the morning, covered her in a blanket, and said ‘happy birthday!’”
The paramedics then rushed Fair and Jayla to the hospital, while Moore was lauded for assisting her mom in giving birth. The little girl had done something unusual.
Fair was also taken aback by how her eldest kid assisted her after her water broke. She remembered being unable to pick Jayla, but seeing Moore wipe the baby’s face made her feel comforted. Fair also stated that s he was extremely helpful.
Moore’s unexpected attempts to assist her mom in giving delivery were cause for rejoicing. North County Fire & Rescue presented her with a certificate and gifts, including a customized jersey, a tablet with educational games, a notepad, and a pink stork pin that represents the delivery of a baby.
Moore was also awarded a certificate for her courage by the Christian Hospital Emergency Medical Services. Nobody could have predicted that a 10-year-old girl would manage such a difficult situation so nicely.
North County Fire & Rescue posted photographs of the celebration with a statement describing what occurred when the water breached at Fair. Netizens couldn’t help but leave supportive comments under their post.
