Indian expat gives birth at hospital driveway in Sharjah


DUBAI – An Indian expat delivered a healthy baby girl at the entrance driveway of Burjeel Hospital Sharjah in an unusual delivery this month.

Parveen Banu said she was not expecting to give birth on August 4 as she was supposed to be due for delivery of her second child on August 16.

Banu, who lives in Ajman with her husband, said they rushed to Burjeel Hospital Sharjah as soon as the labour pains started coming.

“On the way I could actually feel the baby coming out,” Banu said. Luckily, the hospital was only 10 minutes away.

The baby was halfway out by the time the car reached a traffic signal. As soon as they reached the hospital gates, the couple alerted the security guard and two nurses rushed to help them.

Dr. Hala Al Taie, a physician at the hospital, said the nurses cordoned off the area and assisted Banu during the unusual delivery.

The baby girl is currently receiving care at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the hospital. She has been named Absheen. ICA/Expat Media
