File photo: Pregnant woman

Viral photos on social media have captured moments a pregnant woman in labour was forced to deliver on the road with the help of a male nurse.

The nurse, identified as William Otoo is said to be a worker at the Amartey CHIPS in the Kwahu District of the Eastern Region.

Reports indicate Mr Otoo came across the woman on his way to his health facility for the day’s work.

The photos captured two elderly women holding a cloth to provide shade under the scorching sun while he assisted the woman to put to birth.

Despite the gender of the baby not immediately known, it is believed she was delivered of the baby safely as another photo captured the baby wrapped in a white cloth and laid on William’s arms.


The nurse has since been showered with praises after the photos went viral.
