A waste picker at the Stung Meanchey dumpsite delivered her own baby on Thursday morning because she could not afford a doctor, police said. Theak Sok Heng, 33, was home alone when she went into labour, said Stung Meanchey commune police chief Mao Sareoun. “She is very poor and she has no money to pay the fees to deliver at the hospital. So she decided to deliver the baby alone by herself in her shack,” he said. Authorities later sent her to the commune health centre and both she and the baby are in good condition.
