Illinois Woman Goes Into Labor, Gives Birth In Middle Of Bar Exam
There's multitasking, then there's what this Illinois woman somehow managed to pull off.
There are some of us who can barely focus on one thing, much less doing two things at the same time.
Think about it, you're super pregnant and getting ready to take a test that could change your life if you somehow manage to pass.
Illinois pushed the bar exam from July to October due to the coronavirus. Brianna Hill a recent graduate from Chicago's Loyola University School of Law was ready to take it then and I'm sure ready to take it in October too.
However, there wasn't anything that could prepare Hill for what happened during day one of the two-day exam. Hill apparently went into labor, like, early. As in, two weeks early.
Hill told Good Morning America despite contractions that kicked in 15 to 20 minutes after she started the second section of the exam wasn't going to let up:
'I was determined,' Hill added as to why she didn't stop the exam after showing signs of labor. 'Also, I've never been pregnant before, so I was [thinking], 'I don't know what this feels like.'
Somewhere along the way, Hill must've decided it was happening, because she along with her husband left for West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park.
In just a few hours Hill greeted her first child, Cassius Phillip weighing in at 6 pounds 5 ounces.
After all that day two of the extremely challenging bar exam loomed.
Hill told Good Morning America that the hospital reserved a private room for her to complete the exam complete with a "do not disturb" sign on the door. She credits the "professional women supporting (Hill's) professional goals" as the reason for managing to pull both off.
The next time you think you can't take on two things at once just remember Brianna Hill's amazing story.
