A young medical student in India helped a woman called Chitralekha deliver her baby aboard a train, while he received instructions from a group of his teacher over Whatsapp.

During the trip, the train suddenly stopped, when the woman’s husband pulled on the emergency chain because his wife’s labour had started. "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," Khadse said.

When Khadse got to Chitralekha he encountered a very complicated situation. She was bleeding extensively, because the baby’s shoulder had come out first from her v*gina, instead of his head.

A group of passengers helped convert one of the train’s compartment into a makeshift delivery room, and Khadse immediately decided to get in contact with a senior doctor, in order to ask for instruction on how to proceed with such an unusual birth. He uploaded a photo in a WhatsApp group of doctors, and senior resident Shikha Malik started guiding him.

Khadse said he used chilled water bottles to stop the bleeding, and that a midwife who was on the train helped him.

Chitralekha gave birth to a baby boy, and when they arrived at Nagpur station, a medical team was waiting to help out with the situation. But everything was already fine, and the new mother, her husband and baby continued their journey without needing to go to a hospital.
