Cape doctor delivers baby in school parking lot while dropping off the kids

9 February 2016 9:04 AM

It was a regular Monday morning for local gynae and obstetrician Dr Veronique Eeckhout, on her routine trip to drop off the kids.

It was a regular Monday morning for local gynaecologist and obstetrician Dr Veronique Eeckhout, on her routine trip to take her children to school.

A little late to the gates, Eeckhout noticed some commotion in a vehicle nearby and approached it to see if she could offer medical assistance.

Completely unprepared, Eeckhout was fortunate to get help from a physician and collected school supplies as a substitute for surgical equipment.

Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

I parked in front of the school and at the gate I notice arms and legs in the car as a guy jumps out of the car.

Dr Veronique Eeckhout, OB/GYN

I thought somebody is probably nauseous or having a heart attack, I should check it out.

Dr Veronique Eeckhout, OB/GYN

There was a baby half in, half out. The husband had already delivered the head and I delivered the rest of the body.

Dr Veronique Eeckhout, OB/GYN

The woman said it was her third pregnancy, the previous two were stillbirths, so I thought to myself that this baby has to make it.

Dr Veronique Eeckhout, OB/GYN

We have a healthy baby, a healthy mother and it all worked out. I was at the right time at the right place.

Dr Veronique Eeckhout, OB/GYN
