"It Was an Amazing Experience": LDS 16-Year-Old Delivers Her New Cousin in a Bathroom

"We could have been in a dirty car with soccer gear and mud from the Scouts and everything else," Laura Creager said. "We might not have been able to get a hold of an ambulance. Here, we had everything we needed and we weren't stranded in the canyon alone."

High school student Morlie Hayes had just learned about labor in her child development class, but she didn't expect to put the lesson to use so soon.

Days later, the 16-year-old is being credited for delivering her baby cousin over the weekend.

"It was an amazing experience," Morlie said, though she had expected to wait a few years before assisting in any birth.
