A midwife who was spotted transporting an expectant woman in labour on a shabby-looking wooden door to a clinic has been celebrated for her dedication and commitment to her work.
The midwife was captured with some residents carrying an expectant mother in labour on the makeshift wooden door to a distant clinic in the Sekyere East District in the Ashanti Region.
YEN.com.gh previously reported that the cocoa-growing area, where the incident occurred lacks basic social amenities, including potable water and electricity.
The absence of well-resourced health facilities coupled with bad roads in the area compelled the midwife and some of the residents to use the wooden door to transport the pregnant woman.
Heartbreaking photos of the incident were shared on social media and the midwife has been celebrated for her bravery and dedication.
In a Facebook post by Wendy Boatemaa Ofori, the midwife has been showered with accolades for going the extra mile to deliver health care to residents in the area.

''I want to celebrate her, I want to share her story!!! I admire her so much!!! She is in my district, best midwife. She improvised, she used a wooden door to carry a woman in labour in a hard to reach area to the clinic.
''Her clinic has no water nor electricity.. she is in dire need of a Polytank... whatever it takes, I will support her get the Polytank!!! DELA, you inspire me!! I admire you.''
