August 8, 2012 – Woman Delivers Baby In Pit Toilet

A pregnant woman in her late 20’s identified as Chindwe Amoloku got the shock of her life on Sunday August 5, 2012 after she delivered her baby in a pit toilet (latrine).

This happened at Umusan Ogbe in Kwale, Delta State Nigeria.

Mrs Amoloku obviously had no clue what her baby due date was.

On a visit to a pit toilet one evening, she fell into labour.

With no one around to help her, she delivered the baby into the pit toilet.

Her yell for help attracted neighbours who came to rescue the baby.

We used a stick to push the baby into a rubber bucket tied with a rope in order to drag it out of the pit,” an eyewitness, Sunday Uzor, said.

She was quickly rushed to a traditional birth clinic where a nurse attended to her.

The woman said she was pressed and went to the toilet but when she pressed, the baby came out and fell into the latrine, while the placenta slipped into her stomach.”-said Sunday Uzor, a witness.

Thank God for people who rescued this baby.

  1. That’s stupidity! There is more than enough information on the air for pregnant women to avoid pit latrine, apart from such incident, she might contact diseases as well. Pple just like to risk their lives unnecesarily, later they will claim it is devil!

  2. When she concieved even she herself doesnt know. So, when she will deliver nobody knows that was the reason she delivered in the pit toilet. The baby just have to be thoroughly taken care of. Am happy for her that she delivered safely. Congrats

  3. what a news… What a miracle… Well we thank GOD the baby and the mother are safe. Jst hop the baby doesnt get infected.

  4. Guy Nobody have to blame her 4 that it was a case that No human on Earth knows His/her Delivering date…. I pray that God sholud help her…
