President Obama helped catch and steady a fainting woman during a Monday speech about his health care agenda in the Rose Garden.

In a video, woman standing behind him, Karmel Allison, stumbles a little and is caught by the president and a few people standing around her.

Allison, a diabetic, was there to support the president in his speech addressing the troubled rollout of Obamacare. Despite rising costs of her health care, she has stayed on the same plan most of her life for fear she'd be rejected because of her pre-existing condition. But the White House says Allison now feels like an equal with health care options, according to a report on Mediaite.

After she was steadied during the speech, Allison was led away, and Obama cracked that that's what happens when he talks too long.

Allison tweeted after the event that she was doing fine, and also revealed she's pregnant.
