If you have ever been around as a child is born, you can admit that this is an experience unlike any other. Having a baby is a complex and unpredictable experience full of great expectations and a healthy dose of anxiety.
That is why the best option is to give birth in the hospital with trained professionals looking after you.
However, the unpredictability aspect can get in the way of that, and you could end up having a baby in the most unusual of places. Recently, a woman had a baby while on her flight to Hawaii.
The birth happened during a Delta flight to Honolulu.
The plane had just taken off from Salt Lake City, and it was cruising over the Pacific when passengers were asked if they had a doctor among them.
These are not the sort of questions people ignore. Everyone was on alert because, naturally, something was up.
Julia Hansen, one of the passengers, whipped out the phone and started recording a video to make the best of the situation.
According to a report she gave the media, the announcement woke her from her nap.
Apparently, the speaker was going on and off as if they were about to announce something, but they weren't saying anything. Eventually, a baby was heard crying.
In other words, a baby was born during the flight.
A passenger had given birth over the Pacific Ocean, and Hansen filmed the chaotic scene as it unfolded.
In the recording, most passengers can be seen straining to look at the drama taking place at the back of the plane.
Soon enough, the pilot made an official announcement.
Clearly, the passengers had an idea of what was going on, but the announcement assured them that a woman had just had a baby on the plane.
After the announcement from the pilot, the passengers applauded the mother who had managed to bring a life into this world in the most awkward of environments.
As they say, what's important is that things end on the right note.
A couple of hours after the seven-hour flight, the new mom was wheeled off the plane with her baby on her lap.
Hansen was among those wishing the new mom all the best as she started the new phase of her life.
Delta Later Confirmed The Birth
After the woman got off the plane, everyone got their luggage and left.
Delta also confirmed what Hansen revealed in her video. Obviously, this was an incredible experience for everyone on the plane, especially the mother.
