Nigerian Doctor and Ebola Survivor Gives Birth to a Baby Girl in US

A Nigerian medical doctor who contracted and recovered from Ebola has given birth to a baby girl in the United States.

The hospital where she works in Lagos said, "First Consultants Medical Center officially announces that resident staff and Ebola survivor Dr. Ada Igonoh gave birth to a baby girl a few hours ago. The baby girl, weighing nine pounds one ounce (4.11 kilos), was born at the Greater El-Monte Community Hospital, California."

First Consultants hospital, a 40-bed private clinic in the bustling Obalende district of Lagos, was where Nigeria's first case of Ebola was detected in July 2014. Dr. Igonoh helped to treat the patient, a Liberian finance ministry official, and certified him dead several days after he was first admitted. She fell ill the following week.

First Consultants said, "Igonoh had been under medical supervision since becoming pregnant and that her daughter was certified Ebola-free at birth. The birth was a new lease of life and in memory of fallen colleagues and survivors of Ebola."
