Rita Wurapa and Rose Ayivor who were on a monitoring trip to Dambai and Nkwanta encountered a woman in labour on a motorbike in Dambai.

Obviously in distress, the motor rider and husband who was conveying his distressed wife to a nearby health facility had no option but to stop in the middle of the road.

A crowd started to gather around the screaming mother, first-time mother and helpless husband but no one could offer any help until the two health officer chanced on the incident.

With over 15 years of public health under her belt, Rita Wurapa and her colleague drew closer only to see a woman in labour.

In the middle of the street, they delivered the woman of the baby after marshalling women standing by to form a screen with their clothing.

The mother and the newly born baby were later sent to the hospital. Both of them are doing very well.
