She Delivered Another Woman's Baby Before Her Own. Internet Hails #DrMom

A Kentucky OBGYN who was preparing to give birth to her own baby jumped into action to deliver another patient's baby, WKYT reports.

Once Hess delivered the patient's baby, she gave birth later that day to a healthy baby girl. Later that night, she too gave birth to a baby girl.

And then, surprise: she recognized Mrs. Johnson, that she had received in consultation a few days earlier. "I love taking care of mothers and babies and ... a lot of doctors are always thinking of their patients, even when they're a patient themselves", Hess told WKYT.

"I had actually taken a call the day before, so I thought really that I was working up to the last minute. I'm here in a gown, but I think we ought to have the baby, '" she told NBC News affiliate WLEX-18.

Hats off to this #DrMom and member of Physician Moms Group #PMG, Dr. Amanda Hess! Halliday-Johnson told PEOPLE. "She was in complete doctor mode". She has led the delivery, which went without a hitch. Unfortunately, the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby's neck-and nurses were telling her not to push and wait for the doctor, who was on his way back from a break. "I was in my own world there". But no one was there for the birth, his doctors are apparently paused.

"I was not being quiet about the fact that it was hard for me not to push", Halliday-Johnson told PEOPLE in an interview. "And I'm more comfortable with delivering someone else's baby than my own, for sure".
