Once his little brother, Daxx, is old enough to understand, Jayden Fontenot, 10, will have an amazing story to tell him about saving his life on the day he was 𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧. Not all heroes wear capes best describe the brave act of a 10-year-old boy that helps deliver his 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 brother. His quick thinking and calm demeanor save the lives of his mother and the new𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧. Jayden Fontenot’s courageous act came about when his pregnant mom woke up and headed to the bathroom to pee when her membrane r.uptured. At 34 weeks, Ashley didn’t prepare for such an occurrence, and she had to think fast about how to save the situation since the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦’s legs were visibly out.
At this juncture, Ashley called out for his son Jayden to the bathroom, being the eldest kid and only one in the house besides her 11-month old sister. This strange experience was the scariest thing ever to happen to Ashley as she sat down on the bathroom floor. The 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦’s legs had turned purple, indicating a lack of enough oxygen for the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦. Jayden responded quickly, running to his grandmother’s house to call for an emergency response.
In an attempt to save the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦’s life, Ashley had to gather all her remaining strength with the help of his son, who held the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦’s leg and helped pull as mom pushed in distrᴇss.
After delivering the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 and realizing it was out-of-air, Jayden rushed to the kitchen to pick a nose aspirator and help mom clear the new𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧’s air passage. Soon after they finished, the emergency medical responders got home to take mom and his new𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧 brother to the hospital.
This bold move by the 10-year-old did marvel not only his stepdad but also impressed viewers. One viewer went ahead to say that this could be the beginning of a possible profession in the medical field for Jayden.
