Live: Mom Dances In Between Contractions

We usually think of a woman in labor as screaming in pain and begging for ice chips. Well, Akilah Wooten is no regular woman.

Wooten, who was told to do squats to help move the baby down, decided to dance to Silentó's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" instead while in between contractions at the Atlanta Medical Center.

"She came in labor but the baby was sitting high in her pelvis," said Angelina Ruffin, the certified nurse midwife who filmed the pregnant dance that's been viewed over 1 million times on YouTube since it was posted on Oct 1. "I told her to get moving and walk or do squats, but then I didn't see her for awhile. I rounded the corner and there she was with her sister and cousin dancing. I had to film it.">

Ruffin adds that the dancing "definitely helped" speed up Wooten's labor. "Every time I checked her the baby had moved down." Wooten gave birth to a 9 lb., 6.5 ounce baby girl just a few hours later.

Love: Hillary Clinton Hits The Bar

2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton met her soul sister on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live - Val the bartender.

Val did what all good bartenders do, give advice, and this advice went to "Hillary Clinton" played by Kate McKinnon. The two fist bumped, sang "Lean on Me" and showered McKinnon's clinton with compliments.

When "Clinton" complains that she feels she's stuck in Donald Trump's shadow, Val cheers her up with a pretty spot-on Trump impression

"Donald Trump? Isn't he the one that's like 'Uh, you're all losers?'"

Inspire: Tennessee Teacher Goes The Extra Mile

A Memphis, Tennessee teacher went viral after a touching photo of him was posted online. 

Carl Schneider, a teacher at Whitney Achievement Elementary School, walks his students home every day from school. He's one of five teachers at the school who do so. 

He says this act helps teachers get to know the kids and what they learned that day, as well as ensure they all get home safely.
