In a shocking incident, a 30-year-old woman gave birth to a baby in an auto rickshaw after being denied admission at the Neemuch district hospital in Madhya Pradesh for want of an anaesthetist. While the mother and the child were subsequently admitted to the hospital and were doing well, the district collector ordered an inquiry into the incident.

What did the family say?

Dinesh Silavat, who hails from Rajasthan’s Chittorgarh district, said that he has been living at Malkheda village of Neemuch for a few days and his wife Rajni started experiencing labour pains around 2.30 pm on Wednesday.

He rushed her to the district hospital in a rickshaw, he told the media. But the hospital staff asked him to take his wife to Udaipur, Rajasthan, he claimed.

“Despite my repeated requests, they did not budge, and women staffers told us to leave the hospital. As we came out of the hospital around 4 pm, my wife gave birth in the auto rickshaw,” Silavat added.

“Some good-hearted people arranged sheets to provide privacy to my wife when she delivered the baby,” he said.

He further said that the hospital staff let the woman and the baby in the hospital when they learnt about the delivery.
