Tonisha Petty-Jones, who is a mother of three, gives the term ‘super mum’ a whole new meaning. The US woman stunned nurses and doctors by giving birth to her baby unassisted – while standing in a hospital corridor.
A video of the incredible moment shows Petty-Jones standing over her wheelchair before effortlessly pulling her baby out from her pants.
As midwives and doctors scramble to get their gloves on to assist with the quick birth, the mum doesn’t seem at all fazed and just does what she needs to do in the moment. “Good job!” one of the midwives said once the baby is pulled out.
The midwives then all cheer the mum for her incredible work and the man behind the camera gives a big “Wow!” Petty-Jones smiles – no doubt very happy to see her baby enter into the world safely.
The new mom received several supportive messages in the comments of the videos.
“This is incredible. How is she even standing up ??? Such a strong Mama. Beautiful video.”
Someone wrote, “This is powerful and amazing! Mama smiles like it’s no big deal that she just birthed a whole human standing up next to the wheelchair. That woman is a force to be reckoned with!”
Another person wrote, “Now she’s a bad*ss! She just pulled that baby out like she the Queen of birthing. And is!”
Other people commented on the look she gave hospital staff, a classic Black woman look.
“That smug look on her face. Made it look casual, I love it!,” one person wrote with laughing emojis.
“The look at the end says ‘this more more than a head ma’am. Amazing,” another person wrote.
Congratulations to this Supermom! Show them how a Black woman DO!
