Totally Calm 10-Year-Old Helps Deliver Baby Sister in Car (VIDEO)

Stephanie ZamoraJust when you think you've heard it all, a 10-year-old girl goes and delivers her baby sister. I'm serious! Fifth-grader Stephanie Zamora was in the car with her parents while they were on their way to the hospital for mom to give birth when things started getting a little dicey. See, before they got to their destination, Stephanie's mom had the uncontrollable urge to push. So, Stephanie did what most no 10-year-old would do: She stepped up and played the role of midwife. And, shockingly, everything went off without a hitch.

Stephanie saw the baby coming out and called 911. The dispatcher on the other end gave her instructions on how to deliver the baby/what to do afterwards ("Put the baby on her belly and make sure the cord isn't wrapped around her neck"), and Stephanie translated the directions to her parents. That's a lot of pressure for a 10-year-old kid! But Stephanie remained calm, cool, and collected from start to finish. Check this girl out:

Ain't no thing, right? She just helped deliver her baby sister, that's all. Nothin' to see here. Keep on movin'. ("I just got the baby out.") I mean, what?! I am seriously impressed with this girl. Not sure I'd be able to remain so poised if put in a similar position. Stephanie was on top of things. Her mother is seriously lucky she was in the car with her. And so is her baby sister -- who, by the way, will probably never hear the end of this for as long as she lives.

How impressive is Stephanie? Do you have a story of not making it to the hospital in time?
