1The woman who completed a college exam while in labor
The Middle Georgia State University student finished the exam in under two hours and passed with a B. Her sister, Shanell Brinkley Chapman, posted a picture of the feat on Facebook saying: “This is what you call ‘Strong Priorities.' Contractions three minutes apart and (she) still takes her psychology test! You are going to be a great mom baby sis.”

5The photographer mom who documented her own delivery with photos
Until their daughter, Anora Wren, was born in December of 2015, Robinson had never photographed a birth. She says she was careful not to put too much pressure on herself to take the photos, as she knew labor and delivery do not always go as planned.
Anora's delivery, however, went smoothly. Robinson captured stunning images of her labor, her husband's first look at their daughter, and their daughter in her doctor's hands immediately after delivery. (Source)

7The woman who stole a pickup truck while in labor
The woman was one of four suspects—two women and two men—who decided it would be fun to steal the truck and take it for a joyride. All seemed to be going well until the driver went the wrong way, knocked down a utility pole, and crashed into two vehicles before stopping. While cuffing the mama-to-be, police discovered she was going into labor at that moment. She was taken to the hospital, while her partners in crime were transported to the police station. (Source)

While some commenters criticized Jonathan for playing the game while she was in labor, he said she wasn't mad at all. (Source 1 | Source 2)
