At first, vipin was afraid of delivering the baby as he was still in college and did not have the required experience. As no doctor found on the train, he took the things into his own by following his senior’s instructions thorough whatsapp.




Speaking to Times of India, Vipin said, “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.”


On reaching Nagpur station, a female doctor from the railway hospital entered the compartment in order to provide medical attention to both mother and baby.




Vipin said that he wants to become a surgeon and took to Facebook to share his joy.

You did a great job and saved 2 lives.
