A pregnant mother enrolled in college courses wasn’t going to let labor stop her from completing an exam.
Tommitrise Collins went into labor on Nov. 12. Tommitrise’s sister posted a photo of her to Facebook showing the mother on a hospital bed in Macon, Georgia with her laptop open in front of her. According the the post, her contractions were three minutes apart.
“This is what you call ‘Strong Priorities,” wrote Shanell Brinkley Chapman. “Contractions 3 minutes apart and still takes her psychology test!”
The post has been shared more than 14,000 times.
Shortly after finishing her exam, Tommitrise delivered a healthy baby girl, weighing 7 lbs, 10 oz.
