    Mizoram MLA helps woman deliver baby as doctor is unavailable

    After receiving the information, the legislator rushed to the hospital and performed an emergency cesarean. The mother and the baby are doing well

    Guwahati: As the Covid19 pandemic has brought the poor medical infrastructure across the country to light, in Mizoram a legislator ZR Thiamsanga performed an emergency cesarean and helped a woman deliver when he was told that no doctor was available to attend to her.

    The MLA, a doctor by profession who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, was visiting the earthquake-hit areas of the remote Champhai district on Monday.

    Thiamsanga told media that one pregnant woman identified as C Lalhmangaihsangi (38) from the remote Ngur village was expecting her second child but was bleeding profusely and her condition was critical when he reached the spot.

    He added, “The medical officer of the Champhai hospital was on leave due to health issues and the woman was not in a position to travel to Aizawl, about 200 km away.”

    After receiving the information, the legislator rushed to the hospital and performed an emergency cesarean. The mother and the baby are doing well, he said.

    He is usually known for putting on his stethoscope to attend to medical emergencies in remote areas.

    Earlier in June, Thiamsanga hit the headlines when he rushed to attend to one IR policeman who was suffering from acute stomach ache while on duty guarding the India-Myanmar border at Tiau (Tio River). He had crossed a stream and walked several kilometers.

    He contested the 2018 election from Mizo National Front (MNF) and presently the vice-chairman of the state Health and Family Welfare Board.
