The lives of a 22-year-old expectant mother, Fiakeye Jennifer Etsa and her unborn baby, were saved in a commercial vehicle at Atorkor in the Anlo District of the Volta Region following the timely intervention of a young midwife.
Citinewsroom.com reports that the midwife, Faith Lebene Vibah, a past student of Tamale Nurses and Midwives Training College, was on her way from Adutor to Akatsi, all in the Volta Region, when she forsook her journey after she sighted people looking helpless around the pregnant woman in a parked sprinter bus at Dabala junction.
Lebene Vibah reveals that the screams and shouts attracted her to the scene where she found that Fiakeye, the expectant mother, was in labour while in severe pains.
After spotting the sprinter bus with another taxi parked by it with people making distress calls, she got closer, only to find out ''a pregnant woman was in the process of giving birth.''
''On seeing that, I dropped my luggage and rushed to rescue the woman who gave birth to a boy in the process without even using protectives for my personal safety, since it was an urgent situation, I had no option than to use my bare hands to rescue the innocent baby and the mother,'' Vibah said.
The family of Fiakeye Etsa showered accolades on the midwife for her humanitarian gesture.
Faith Lebene Vibah, who is awaiting posting, says she is ready to save lives.
