Badass doctor casually helps deliver another woman's baby while in labor herself.

As if moms weren't already super humans for pushing babies out of their bodies, this mom just took the whole baby-delivery thing to the next level.

While in labor at the very hospital where she works, Dr. Amanda Hess, an OBGYN, overheard the nurses saying there was another patient in labor who desperately needed a doctor. So despite being in labor herself, Hess stepped up to the plate, waddled down the hall, and helped Leah Halliday Johnson deliver her baby.

It's a little something we like to call ~birth inception.~

Hess' colleague, Dr. Hala Sabry, shared a post on Facebook telling the story of the double delivery. She explained:

[W]hile 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!!
