11-year-old girl helps deliver mom's baby before going to school


How do you spend your Tuesday mornings? Like most children, Caitlin Burke spent hers at school -- but only after delivering her mother's baby.

According to ITV, mom Tara Knightley went into labor just 10 minutes after her partner had left the house around 5 a.m that Tuesday morning.

Being the oldest of five children, the responsibility was on Caitlin to help her mom through this life-changing moment.

Although the two called emergency medical services for help, there was no time for an ambulance to make it to the home in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

With medical professionals on the phone, 11-year-old Caitlin expertly guided her mother through the intense labor. Although she was shaken, the girl said it was all worth it in the end.

Caitlin's mother is especially impressed with Caitlin. Knightley told ITV that even though she was "screaming in pain," her daughter "was calm throughout."

Kightley gave birth to baby Elsa-Monet after only two hours of labor, around 7 a.m.

"Caitlin was just amazing. I find it difficult to put into words just what she has done for me."

Just hours after Caitlin helped deliver her mother's newest child, the 11-year-old went off to enjoy a normal day at school.

We're sure she had a very exciting story to tell her classmates that morning!
