MediCard Nurse helps homeless in giving birth

Nurse Mary Lorraine Pingol did not expect she’ll be delivering a baby at a sidewalk in Makati while on her way to work.

“There was no other medical worker available at the scene. It think it was fate that I passed by so I could help the lady and her baby,” nurse Raine said.

In a facebook post that had gone viral, Raine narrated how she had to deliver a baby at a “sidewalk near where garbage was dumped” She said, “the place was filthy and there were no sterile tools available.”

“Im thankful it wasn’t a complicated birth. The lady was conscious and alert and the baby is not premature,” she added.

The mom and the baby were brought to a health facility in Makati and are now safe.
