This 12-year-old delivering her baby brother has gone viral

Wow.

A 12-year-old girl did something most of her peers probably haven't ever experienced when she helped to deliver her own little brother recently.

Jacee Dellapena from Brandon, Mississippi in the US was very hands on in helping to bring baby Cayson into the world, as these photos that her mum Dede posted to Facebook show.

"Every picture you see her face changing," Dede told ABC News.

"Just looking at her, there was not a dry eye in the room. It was so emotional."

She said that Jacee had asked to be present for the birth and that after discussing it, she and her husband Zack agreed.

It was only when the birth itself was happening that Walter Wolfe, the family's obstetrician, invited Jacee to get involved in delivering the baby.

Jacee told her mum shortly after the birth that she now wants to be an obstetrician when she's older.

"If I didn't feel like she wasn't ready to do what she did or be in the room, I wouldn't [have] let her be in the room," added Dede.

"Everybody's just real supportive of her."
