She delivered the baby in front of the Tirupati Maternity Hospital


A video showing a woman giving birth on the road near a hospital in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, has gone viral on social media. The video shows several women holding a bed sheet to cover the woman while a man helps her give birth.

The woman is seen screaming in pain.

A woman, who is from Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh, was forced to deliver her baby outside the 100-bed Tirupati Maternity Hospital, allegedly after the staff refused to admit her. The woman was allegedly told by hospital staff that they could not admit her because no one was accompanying her.

Strangers came to her aid when the woman began to experience labor pains after leaving the hospital. The man who helped her deliver the baby is said to work at a primary health care center.

The woman and child were later taken in by the hospital, officials said, adding that it was now ensured that no pregnant woman would be denied admission even without a companion.

Tirupati district health in-charge Srihari said an inquiry has been ordered into the incident. He also said that action will be taken against those found guilty.
