Giving birth on a lawn would be a woman’s worst nightmare, but a woman in Mexico was left no other choice. An indigenous woman's picture has gone viral after she squats down in labor pain and gives birth on a health clinic's front lawn after she's refused admission, according to UPI.com on Oct. 11.
The baby was coming and this is one action from Mother Nature that cannot be stopped once the wheels are in motion. The 29-year-old woman made the hour-long journey down from a mountain to get to the clinic when she went into labor.
The picture shows the only option this woman was left with, which was inhumane and heart-wrenching to see. She has the look of agony and fear on her face as her newborn baby is on the green grass of this clinic's lawn.
A passerby clicked a picture of this incident and this photo went viral online. This is the picture seen above, it has been buzzing in the social networks today. As his wife delivered their baby on the front lawn, her husband begged for help from the people running the clinic, but his pleas were ignored.
After her healthy baby boy was born, the clinic did admit her. She was originally turned away after being told by the nurses that their calculations put her at only eight months pregnant.
This horrendous incident was terrifying for the woman, who later said in an interview how frightened she was and how much pain she was in. This story offers a picture that symbolizes the many women in the world who face the realization that healthcare is not within their reach.
