A young midwife has become an internet sensation after she helped a woman in labour deliver her baby safely while on board a commercial bus on Sunday, September 23.

According to report, the midwife was a passenger on a Bolgatanga bound bus. Midway through their journey, a passenger who was pregnant went into labour. The midwife sprang into action and with the help of two other nurses on board, the baby was safely delivered at about 3:34 am after the driver stopped the moving bus somewhere along the Buipe road.

After the delivery, the newly-born baby and her mother were reportedly handed over to the husband who is said to have taken them to the West Hospital in Tamale for further care.

According to a social media user, Mawunyo Bubutor, who shared the story on Facebook, the beautiful midwife is Sophia Safia Sulemana of the Kunkwa Health Centre in the Maprugu District of the Northern Region.
