Everyone remembers the scene from “3 Idiots” when Aamir Khan, with few engineering students helped Mona Singh in delivering her baby and they took help from a qualified doctor by using a webcam.
A similar situation took place with Vipin Khadse (24), a final year student of MBBS, helped a lady in Ahmedabad-Puri Express to give birth to a baby boy and took instructions from his seniors through WhatsApp.
Vipin Khadse is not a professional doctor as he is still taking training at the Nagpur based Government Medical College and Hospital, but has performed a complicated delivery in a very nice manner. Chitralekha and her husband are both labourers and they were travelling from Ahmedabad to Raipur, Chhatisgarh. On the way, Chitralekha got her labour pain.
Vipin told Times Of India that the trained had stopped 30 Km away from Nagpur, near Wardha, when a relative of Chirtralekha pulled the chain of the train. He said, “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.”
When Vipin reached, till then Chitralekha was bleeding heavily. As a sign of humanity, everyone departed from the compartment and all the lady passengers turned the train compartment into a makeshift delivery room. Vipin told, “The delivery was complicated because instead of the head, the baby’s shoulder was hanging out of the vagina. I uploaded a photo in a WhatsApp group of doctors for help. A senior resident Shikha Malik guided me on the phone to conduct the delivery. I had to use chilled water bottles to stop her bleeding. The amniotic fluid had completely dried. A midwife on the train helped me.”
Vipin has a dream of becoming a surgeon in future and says that every doctor should have the knowledge of delivering a baby to help a woman in case of emergency.
The woman was helped by a team of doctors when the train reached Nagpur. The situation was controlled by the doctors and new parents were given the permission to travel with proper medication.
Honor to the guy & the doctors who helped the woman in such a situation.
