PCG assists woman giving birth at Southeastern Mindanao HQ

Medical personnel of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) have assisted a mother who unexpectedly gave birth in front of their Coast Guard District Southeastern Mindanao (CGDSEM) Headquarters on Thursday.

In a statement, the CGDSEM said their personnel on-scene duty reported that the pregnant woman and her partner asked for mobility assistance to bring them to the nearest hospital.

However, the woman unexpectedly experienced labor pains and gave birth in front of the headquarters.

Coast Guard personnel from the district wasted no time and provided medical assistance for the mother to successfully and safely deliver her baby boy.

The mother and her baby were then treated and transported to the Southern Philippines Medical Center via Coast Guard ambulance.
