Doctor Delivers Baby In Distress Right Before Giving Birth Herself

By Mark Pygas

Last week, Dr. Amanda Hess, an obstetrician-gynecologist from Frankfort, Kentucky, checked into Frankfort Regional Medical Center as a patient expecting to give birth to her daughter. Little did she know, she'd end up delivering another woman's child moments before going into induced labor herself.

While getting ready to give birth to her second child, Hess overheard the cries of Leah Halliday Johnson, who was giving birth to her fourth child. Hess has examined Johnson several times during her pregnancy, so Hess decided to ask a nurse how she was doing.
