Proving that women really can do it all, a pregnant mom-to-be labored through her labor when she officiated another pregnant woman's wedding at a New York hospital this month. Sushma Dwivedi Jindal's anesthesiologist had just given her an epidural when she mentioned another patient was trying to find the hospital chaplain so she and her partner could tie the knot before their baby arrived.
