How often you witness other people helping you, despite the person is busy with their own mess? None, right? Well, there’s a person who helped a lady despite being herself in a situation like her. A god’s sent angel on earth for the lady.
Dr Amanda Hess, a Kentucky based doctor, paused her own delivery to help a patient in labour after realizing the baby is in distress. The Doctor is being applauded on the internet for her selfless deed. Dr Hess was in her own room on July 23 when woman’s wailing in pain caught her attention. The lady, Leah Halliday-Johnson, who was in labour with her umbilical cord wrapped around her baby’s neck, needed the immediate help. As her doctor wasn’t there, and being an OB/GYN herself, Dr Hess knew that the baby needs attention, so she jumped into action.
“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,” Dr Hess says.
On social media, her actions have earned her a lot of goodwill and respect. Former patients have also commented to say how much Dr Hess helped them with their deliveries:
