This morning Gideon was brought by his uncle and aunt. He was only 12 hours old. Last night he was born at the side of the road. The mother started to have contractions and they decided to bring her to the Health Centre on the back of a motorbike. Halfway the baby came, they had to stop and the baby was born, then they proceeded on their way to the health centre. The mother was bleeding a lot. They arrived in the health centre, but they couldn't do anything and the mother passed away. The family came to ask for help for the baby, which they named Gideon, the father was at home in shock. Gideon is a big boy, his weight is 3 kg. He is drinking, we had to retie his cord, it was bleeding a little bit and we started him on antibiotics, he had a bit of a temperature. Being born at the side of the road is not the most sterile environment!
