Doctor Delivers Baby While She's In Labor Too

Let's just call her Super Woman!

July 31, 2017

This may be the most insane birth story ever. 

We've heard about babies being born on the side of the highway, on airplanes, and at home and delivered by a teenage sibling. But this story still takes the cake, I think.

Dr. Amanda Hess was staying in the hospital she works in because she herself was in labor. She heard a woman screaming down the hall and recognized it as one of her own patients. Instead of letting the on-call OBGYN handle it, Hess left her room and went to deliver the baby.

The baby was born healthy and the doctor gave birth to her own healthy baby just twelve hours later. So crazy!
