A Bengaluru dentist helped a pregnant women who had walked 7 kilometres to deliver a baby safely as they could not find any hospital amid lockdown.
The couple had already travelled about 7 kms from Gundenahalli when they reached the clinic in Doddabommasandra.
Within 10 minutes of their arrival, the woman delivered the baby prematurely upon exhaustion of walking for hours. After the baby showed no sign of life, we focused on using all possible means to save the life of the mother,” recalled Dr Ramya, the dental surgeon who became a part of the unplanned delivery.
The mother was bleeding profusely after delivering a premature baby. While others were busy saving her life, the baby suddenly showed some movement. “We managed to revive the baby too after some time,” said Dr Ramya.
Both the mother and baby, who are fine now, are getting treatment at the KC Chandra Government Hospital in Bengaluru.
