“The doctor checked her and asked to get a slip of the Emergency. I went to took the slip and when I returned, my wife was going to the washroom. I asked her not to go but she insisted on going and when she returned, she delivered the child on the floor, outside the labour room,” he said.

He added that after she delivered the child, the staff of the hospital came running and quickly took her and the baby on a stretcher to the labour room.

“Earlier, nobody was present. Staff were busy doing their work and when the baby was delivered on the floor, everyone came running to the spot,” he said.

Dr Hatinder Kaur, Senior Medical Officer (SMO), MCH, said the woman was in her advanced stage of pregnancy and came to the hospital without any investigation report.

“It was the third pregnancy of the woman and the prior two were normal deliveries. She had delivered the child inside the labour room. The staff of the hospital took the patient inside the labour room for delivery by taking all risk as they were not aware about her history. Her husband, who is making allegations, was not even present when the woman was taken inside the labour room,” she said.
