How a Nigerian woman gave birth on board a rescue ship in the Mediterranean Sea (photos)

Baby born on MSF rescue ship. 12 Sept 2016
Faith Oqunbor had been suffering contractions when she left Libya in an overcrowded rubber boat in an attempt to reach Europe, and said she was terrified she would give birth in the rubber dinghy. Faith, her husband Otis and their sons Victory, 7, and Rollres, 5, were rescued by Medical charity MSF.

Faith said: “I was very stressed on the rubber boat, sitting on the floor of the boat with the other women and children, panicking that I would go into labour. I could feel my baby moving. He would move down and then move back up again. I had been having contractions for three days.”
A midwife on board the ship MV Aquarius described the birth as "normal... in dangerously abnormal conditions". MSF said that the baby's parents, Otas and Faith Oqunbor, had named him Newman Otas. .

MSF Midwife Jonquil Nicholl delivered the baby. She said: “I am filled with horror at the thought of what would have happened if this baby had arrived 24 hours earlier; in that unseaworthy rubber boat, with fuel on the bottom where the women sit, crammed in with no space to move, at the mercy of the sea."
