It's just the part from Stagecoach where the baby is born.

"Lucy Mallory" is the same name used in the 1939 version for the respectable pregnant woman who gives birth at one of the way stations. In that one the baby is delivered by the lovable drunken doctor, Doc. Boone, played by Thomas Mitchell. There's not Doc. Boone in the 1986 version so I'm guessing Willie Nelson as "Doc Holliday" fills that roll. That's kind of a weird switch since the gambler Hatfield, played by John Carradine in the Ford version and Waylon Jennings in the '86 version, was already a Doc Holliday-type character.
The whole situation of trying to milk comedy relief out of Mrs. Mallory not wanting the doctor to watch her give birth seems pretty cringe-inducing to me. And regarding anything that happened in real life, the real Doc Holliday was dentist. In fictional depictions he's sometimes a surgeon and sometimes a dentist.
