Beautiful local nurse, Sive Ningiza, has warmed the hearts of more than 18 000 South Africans with her selflessness. 

Ningiza was busy with her shift when a mother came to the hospital in need of medical care. However, she had her little girl with her and it made the situation difficult. 

The inspiring nurse decided to step in to help the mom and she was photographed carrying the baby on her back while she conducted her work and the mother received medical attention. 

Showing South Africans what it is like for nurses during these difficult times, Ningiza posted the snaps on her social media page. 

The photos were originally posted on 8 July, but has been circulating on Twitter since then. She captioned the photos: "The show had to go on while they were busy with mom."
