Few days ago (DDHS) Rita Wurapa and Public Health Nurse Rose Ayivor were on a monitoring trip to Dambai and Nkwanta.
At Dambai, she and her team came across a woman in labour on a motor bike. She was in obvious distress, the okada driver drew to a screeching halt. And individuals around the town starts gathering round the screaming client, helpless driver and anxious relatives.
With 15+ years of public health under her belt, she went closer. Urged by instinct she engaged with the client only to see woman in labour, head in perineum.
In the middle of the street, DDHS Rita and PHN Rose delivered the baby and marshaled women standing by form’s a screen with their clothing.
Baby was delivered and mother was sent to hospital. Mother and baby are doing very well.
Congratulations to DDHS Rita Wurapa.
