A woman from Utah, USA, who had no idea that she was pregnant gave birth to a boy mid-air on flight.
Imagine getting shocked that you’re giving birth, not knowing you were carrying a baby all along.
The mother revealed to the people that helped her out give birth to the boy that she had no idea she was pregnant.
The woman has been identified as Lavinia Mounga, who is from Utah.
She was jetting off on holiday with her family when she began having contractions and it was clear that a baby was o the way.
Luckily, there were a number of medical professionals on board the flight, which includes 3 neo-natal ICU nurses.
Lani Bamfield, a nurse that is based out of Kansas City, helped Lavinia give birth to her baby boy.
She shared the experience of delivering a baby at 30,000 feet on Facebook.
Lani said in the post:
If anyone would like to know how our trip to Hawaii is going… here’s how it started… we delivered a 26-27 weeker in the airplane bathroom, in the middle of the ocean, with three NICU nurses, a Physicians assistant, and a family medicine doctor we were able to make it THREE HOURS before we could finally land but the baby and mom did great. God was definitely with us up there.
Lavinia named the little one as Raymond Kaimana Wade Kobe Lavaki Mounga.
The 2 were brought to a hospital upon landing.
The mother and son are expected to stay in Hawaii until he is strong enough to fly home to Utah.
The news also came as huge shock to Lavinia’s partner, Ethan Magalei, who received the most unexpected call of their life.
Ethan said in a post on social media that the 2 had no idea that they were about to become parents.
The fact that our son is here is a miracle and nothing short of it. Only being able to make FaceTime calls and sendings texts to see him for the moment is hard but trying to stay grateful and bless that he is even here on this Earth in the first place. This birth came as a shock to us both as we had NO idea that she was pregnant.
What an amazing story, right?
