Baby safe after roadside delivery

Baby safe after roadside delivery

Srisoonthorn Municipality rescue workers were called to the scene, in front of the House of Car used car showroom in Moo 8, Srisoonthorn, at about 2:53am.

Rescue workers arrived to find Sawangchit Bunwong, 27, originally from Surat Thani, on the back seat of a grey Mitsubishi Attrage parked by the side of the road, with her newborn boy, ‘Nammon’, in her lap.

Ms Sawangchit’s husband Korrakot Ruengthong, 28, explained that his wife’s water broke during the night, so he called Srisoonthorn rescue workers to take her to Thalang Hospital. 

However, medical staff refused to deliver the baby as Ms Sawangchit was not due to give birth until Jan 23, he said.

Mr Korrakot decided to take his wife to Vachira Phuket Hospital, where he hoped staff there would help.

However, baby Nammon would not wait. 

On the way to the hospital, Sawangchit’s contractions increased so Mr Korrakot pulled over to the side of the road and she gave birth to her son on the back seat of the car, Mr Korrakot said.

Mr Korrakot then called the emergency hotline 1669 so his wife and his baby boy could be taken to hospital.

Ms Sawangchit and Nammon are now reported to both be in a safe condition and under care of medical staff at Thalang Hospital.

Back to Thalang Hospital? 'Under care'  over there? Medical staff there now confronted with their misjudgement. A lot of lose face.. Is it not time to call more openly Thalang Hospital a medical first aid post, rather than a hospital? Not even have the birth giving knowledge? Patients with any serious problems always immediately transferred to the real hospitals in Town.

Thalang hospital staff refused to deliver the baby because it wasn't the due date even though her water had already broken??? Sack these useless wastes of space and give their jobs to people who actually know what they are doing.
