A doctor in Kentucky and her patient will always remember their babies’ birthdays.
Amanda Hess, an OB/GYN in Frankfort, Kentucky, was in the hospital as she prepared to give birth to her daughter. While she waited, Hess heard another expectant mother who was closer to giving birth.
The doctor went to the room, where a woman who happened to be one of her patients was fully dilated. The doctor on call was on his way to the hospital, but the baby was coming. So Hess stepped in and handled the delivery right before she went back to her own room to give birth.
“I just put on another gown to cover up my backside and put on some boots over my shoes, to keep from getting any fluid and all that stuff on me, and went down to her room and I knew her,” Hess told WKYT.
“She was just glad to be able to get to push and have the baby out and not have to wait any longer,” she added.
Then, Hess gave birth to her own daughter, Ellen Joyce.
Congratulations to the two mothers! Now time for maternity leave.
