A 20-hour labour wasn’t going to stop this mum from doing what she needed. Women are unstoppable after all!

According to her sister Shanell Brinkley-Chapman’s Facebook post, Tommitrise Collins had her head down, busy on her laptop finishing her psychology exam when her contractions were just three minutes apart.

“This is what you call ‘Strong Priorities. Contractions 3 minutes apart and still takes her Psychology Test! You are going to be a great Mom baby sis!”
