Doctor takes break from having own baby to help other expectant mother

Kentucky doctor takes break from giving birth to help deliver baby in distress

Hess was already dressed in her patient gown when she realised she would need to first help the other patient, Leah Halliday Johnson, who required immediate attention.

"Bringing life into the world is one of the most unbelievable things that you get to be apart of", said Dr. Amanda Hess. Officials at the hospital say the doctor on call was on his way back to the hospital after leaving for a break.

"My husband actually said, 'Is that woman screaming?'" Hess told WKYT-TV.

Halliday Johnson said what Hess did was pretty unbelievable, and that she felt fortunate Hess was there and the type of person who would step up when needed.

'She was definitely in doctor mode, ' Halliday Johnson told NBC News. Hess quickly realized there was no time to waste.

As Hess welcomed Halliday Johnson's baby girl to the world, her contractions were about to start. "We really appreciate her", she told WLEX-18.

Hess said she believed she'd be working late into her pregnancy, but never thought she'd be working the same day she gave birth.

After Doctor Hess delivered Johnson's baby, she later gave birth and was able to meet her healthy baby girl named Ellen Joyce.

"So, in her own words, she "put another gown on to cover my backside, put some splash boots on over my flip flops" and delivered that baby!"

Hess still had one more delivery scheduled, but this time it was her own. "I feel very lucky she was there".

"You know, I love doing what I do", she told WKYT.
