A woman gave birth to a daughter at the only legal abortion clinic in the state of Mississippi on Wednesday.
The baby was delivered by clinic physician Dr Bruce Norman at the Jackson Women's Health Organization located in Jackson.
'The whole thing happened within about a 20-30 minute span,' clinic director Shannon Brewer told DailyMail.com on Thursday.
Brewer shared as much as she could about the surprising event, without revealing any personally identifying information about the mother and child, who she said are both in good health.

'Based on the appearance of the child that was delivered, it seemed as though the woman had come to full term in her pregnancy,' Brewer said.
But Brewer said her team never had the chance to perform an ultrasound to determine exactly how far along the woman was into her pregnancy, because she went in to labor so quickly after arriving at the facility.
The mother had known she was pregnant for at least a few days, according to Brewer's account of what the mother said at the clinic.
'[The patient] said she went to a hospital a few days before [coming to our clinic] and that's when the hospital staff verified she was pregnant, but didn't do an ultrasound to determine at what stage she was in her pregnancy,' Brewer said.

When asked if the mother seemed surprised or nervous about going into labor during her abortion consultation, Brewer said it was sort of the opposite.
'She was quiet and seemed a little shocked, but not very talkative about it,' she said. 'But then, it all happened so fast that there wasn't a lot of conversation going on.'
After the unexpected delivery at the Jackson Women's Health Organization clinic on Wednesday, both the mother and daughter were transported to a local hospital where they were found to be in good health, according to Brewer.
Even if the woman hadn't gone into labor,
