Spotlight: Special Deliveries
That agreement, evidently, does not extend to her father.
“We never expected that, as a nurse, she would one day deliver the royal baby,” Kenneth Mohammed, minister for the Point Fortin Church of Christ, told Newsday, a periodical on the Caribbean island of Trinidad.
“God does things beyond our imagination,” the minister said.
Ahmed, daughter of Mohammed and his wife, Ena, grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, just north of Venezuela, before moving to England at age 17 to study nursing.
She served as a midwife for Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Ahmed’s family in Trinidad didn’t know of her involvement until they saw footage of her on CNN walking out of St. Mary’s Hospital in London behind the royal couple after Prince George’s birth in 2013.
Ahmed’s mother described her as a loving person who dreamed of becoming a nurse and caring for others. After the latest royal delivery, her home congregation offered prayers of thanks.
One church member told Newsday that it is important to “train your children well, as you never know what role they would be called upon to play in life.”
