A woman gives birth to a baby girl in the courtyard of the Holy Prophet’s mosque in Madinah after developing labor pains.
Director General of the Saudi Red Crescent Authority’s Madina branch Dr. Ahmed bin Ali Al-Zahrani said that the SRCA volunteer team attached to the ambulance center on Al-Haram premises helped the woman deliver the baby safely.
According to the reports, Al-Zahrani said that when the medical team reached the premises they found the woman in a critical state and she was about to give birth. “The woman was experiencing contractions, indicating that she was in labor. Her water had broken and the baby’s head had already come out,” the SRCA team said.
The team swiftly took over and followed the strict protocol and assisted the woman to give birth. A health practitioner who was present at the moment also offered help.
The mother and baby were transferred to the hospital safely after delivery. Dr. Al-Zahrani says such cases require intensive medical care. According to him, the baby was delivered safely due to the specialized training of the medical staff they had received as a health practitioner.
