Malkangiri Woman Delivers Baby While Being Carried On Cot Till Ambulance

Malkangiri: A pregnant woman gave birth to a child while being taken on a cot to an ambulance in Chepulpara village in Malkangiri district on Tuesday. This was so because the ambulance could not reach her doorstep owing to poor road conditions.

Ambulances often fail to reach doorsteps in time in interior parts of Odisha as motorable roads are still missing and the worst sufferers are often expectant mothers.

Sources said family members contacted the village Asha worker the moment Dhabulu Majhi’s wife Kandri Majhi got labour pains. The Asha worker advised them to admit her to the Community Health Centre after which her husband contacted ambulance service.
But the ambulance could not reach them because of poor roads in the village.

Family members tried to carry the woman on a cot but Kandri delivered a baby on the way. The mother and baby were carried on the cot for 7km before the ambulance took them to Khairput Primary Health Centre.
