Brave Nigerian Nurse Delivers Pregnant Woman of her Baby on a Bus in Ogun by Peculiar005: Sun Oct 2021 05:38pm
A brave Lagos based Nurse and mother of 7 week old baby has become an internet sensation after she helped a woman in labour deliver her baby safely while traveling to a remote village in Ogun State via a commercial bus Nursesarena has learnt.

The kindhearted nurse who was identified by social media users as Olayiwola Oluwatoyin Abiola who herself just gave birth barely two months ago was on her way to Ogun State to visit her in-laws when she observed the pregnant woman right behind her wasn't feeling comfortable. She tried to establish a conversation with the woman but the woman wasn't keen on starting any conversation.


Nursesarena gathered that the pregnant woman feeling pressed down beckon on the driver to stop at a petrol/gas station so she could use the toilet as she was feeling "pressed down". Drawing from her Nursing education and experience, Olayiwola sensed the woman's baby might be on the way out. She swiftly sprung into action by introducing herself as a Registered Nurse to everyone and offered explanation of what might actually be happening to the woman. She immediately liased with the gas station staff to organise a safe place where the woman could be examined using a pair of surgical gloves she kept in her bag only to discovered the baby head was halfway out.



With the support from people around, a clean space was provided and resources needed for the delivery was sourced locally as the closest Hospital to their location was 45minutes drive away.

The baby was delivered and mother cleaned up without any major complications. She later took the mother and the baby to Idiroko General Hospital where she handed them over to the medical staff and explained all the care she had provided.
