A final year medical student took the help of technology to deliver a baby on a TRAIN!

Vipin Bhagwanrao Khadse, a 24-year-old final year MBBS student, helped a 24-year old woman in labour and delivered a beautiful baby boy onboard the Ahmedabad-Puri Express.

The male student did so with instructions from his seniors through WhatsApp!

Vipin is not a qualified doctor, but is a student at the Nagpur-based Government Medical College & Hospital in India.

Vipin says the train was about 30km from Nagpur when Chitralekha’s relatives pulled the chain to halt the train near Wardha junction. He said:

The Ticket Collector and Guard were looking for a Doctor on the train. Initially, I kept quiet presuming there could be some experienced Doctor but when they came for a second round of inquiry, I offered to help.” 

It was a complicated delivery as the woman was in great pain and was bleeding profusely. He said

“The delivery was even more complicated because instead of the head, the baby’s shoulder was hanging out of the vagina. I uploaded a photo in a WhatsApp group of doctors for help. A senior resident Shikha Malik guided me on the phone to conduct the delivery. I had to use chilled water bottles to stop her bleeding. The amniotic fluid had completely dried. A midwife on the train helped me.”

The student later also took to Facebook to share his experience with all.
