A set of twin trainee midwives with the Nandom Midwifery Training College in the Upper West Region went to the rescue of an expectant mother in a Babille bound bus and ensured she delivered without any complications attracting praises of other passengers.
According to snippets of information gathered byMyNewsGh.com, the bus was from Techiman in Brong Ahafo Region and heading to the Upper West Region with the twins on board.
Kuusana Asana and her twin sister Kuusana Fuseina on reaching between Sawla and Tuna realized the woman had gone into labour and therefore had to put their professionalism into play according to northernlens.net that first broke the story.
The twins had no option but improvise medical instruments including torn clothes and polythene bags in order to save the situation because no health facility was close and succeeded in delivering the woman of a bouncy baby boy said to be doing well.
“We were with the woman in the bus and she was complaining of stomach pains intermittently whiles dropping down to urinate at a frequent rate. We had to ask whether she was pregnant as she wore some big gown. She confirmed positive and moments later it got out of hands forcing us to improvise many instruments to deliver her. We use polythene bags as gloves, used a torn cloth and a razor blade to detach the chord from the baby”, Asana is reported to have said.
“We later took the mother and the baby to the Tuna clinic the following morning after the driver failed to repair the car which broke down along the road. The baby even saved us since the steering rod had removed from its slot and that is the easiest way to have caused an accident. Thank God the improvise many and saved all of us”. She added.
