Pregnant Doctor Delivers Patient’s Baby Then Gives Birth Too
Pregnant OB-GYN Dr. Amanda Hess knew beforehand that she would be working up until the time she’d be ready to give birth but she didn’t expect that she would literally be delivering a patient’s baby while she was preparing to give birth too.
“I had actually taken a call the day before, so I thought really that I was working up to the last minute. But this was literally ‘til the last second,” Dr. Hess told LEX18.com.
The doctor was almost ready to give birth to her second child when she heard a commotion down the hall of a woman in labor who was already dilated but without any doctor in sight.
“So, I just put on another gown to help cover up my backside and put on some boots over my shoes to keep getting any fluid and all that stuff on me and went down to her room,” said Dr. Hess.
Leah Halliday-Johnson, the woman in labor, said that she had no idea Dr. Hess was also about to give birth and that she was professional the entire time.
“She was definitely in doctor mode,” Halliday-Johnson shared in an interview with NBC News. “My husband noticed something was going on because she had on a hospital gown, but I didn’t notice that because I was on the delivery table. I was in my own world there,” she added.
Dr. Hess gave birth to a daughter a few moments after she returned to her room and shared that she will most likely take eight weeks of maternity leave. “Delivering other people’s babies is something I do every day,” she said. “And I’m more comfortable with delivering someone else’s baby than my own, for sure.”
