Mezanmi (2008)

A young woman pregnant with her first child unintentionally gives birth on the floor just in front of the Maternity Yard of the MSF Jude Anne Hospital. The woman who had been in labour for only a couple of hours did not feel that the baby was about to come out and only had time to sit on the floor. Seconds after this image was taken the MSF staff took care of the newborn and the mother and both were fine and healthy. It is a shocking yet beautiful moment.
