A woman went into labor while taking the bar exam, and she finished it in the hospital after giving birth
Brianna Hill's waters broke about 30 minutes after the remote bar exam started, but she stayed seated to finish the first serving.
After checking with her family and midwife, she completed the second part before going to the hospital, where her son was born that night.
The next day, Hill finished the remainder of the hospital exam, breastfeeding during breaks.

When Brianna Hill felt something unusual about 30 minutes after taking her bar exam on October 5, the 38-year-old pregnant law school graduate didn't get up to check if the feeling was like her water broke.
Instead, she stood for an hour to complete the section according to the remote rules of the test. These state that lawyers must remain seated in front of a camera to make sure they are not cheating.
"When I got up after I finished, I knew my water was broken," Hill, who recently graduated from Loyola University in Chicago, told CNN.
But she still had one more serving to end the day. After she cleaned up and received the blessings of her husband, midwife, and mother - and shed some tears for "panicking a little" - Hill returned to her seat to turn off the second part, the further Lasted 90 minutes.
Only then did she and her husband go to the hospital, where their son was born less than five hours later. "When I go to work, the bar exam really gets put into perspective and my nerves go away really quickly," she told Above the Law.
But Hill still wasn't done with her tests; The remote bar exam is divided into four 90-minute sections that are completed over two days. "I just had no other option in mind," Hill said, according to both outlets, to end the test.
And that's exactly what she did when she sat in an empty hospital room the day after the birth, breastfeeding her newborn during the breaks.
"I'm so grateful for the support system that I had around me. The midwives and nurses were so invested in helping me not only become a mother but also a lawyer," Hill told CNN, adding that her husband , Law school friends and family, especially her sister, were also important cheerleaders.
They "kept reminding me how I could do it, even if I wasn't so sure about myself," she said. Hill doesn't know yet if she passed the bar but has a job on the line.
"I really hope I passed, but for the most part I'm just proud of the fact that I got my way and finished," she told Above the Law.
Hill is the latest viral story of a woman who literally takes "work". Dr. S. Keisin Wang praised his wife Dr. Natalie Drucker, a surgeon who passed orders to her colleague who would take care of her. "Stronger than me!" Wang wrote on Twitter.
