In the world of full of medical apathy, a Kentucky-based doctor paused her own delivery to help other woman.
It was a time when Dr Amanda Hess was in her room and sudenly she heard other lady screaming in pain and selflessly, went to help her.
The other woman Leah Halliday-Johnson was in pain due to her umbilical cord wrapped around her baby’s neck.
As the doctor was in his way to reach for Halliday, Hess thought that the lady need immediate medical attention so she decided to take it in her own hands.
Sharing the story on Facebook, Dr Hala Sabry wrote: “Hats off to this #DrMom and member of Physician Moms Group #PMG, Dr. Amanda Hess! This picture was taken minutes after she delivered her second child, Ellen Joyce! Not only does she look like a stunning model but while she was getting into her patient gown to prepare for her induction and delivery she overheard the nurses preparing for a woman in active labor who needed to deliver immediately because the baby was in distress – that baby was coming and needed help! The patient’s OBGYN was on their way but Dr. Hess (an OBGYN herself) knew that the baby needed attention now! 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! She literally worked until the last second!!
Those mamas are bonded for life! And Baby Ellen (and her big sister Kate) will have fun hearing this story when they are older! Doctor moms consistently take care of their own families as well as their patients and their respective families all the time. Great job, Dr. Hess! Now enjoy your maternity leave!”
