Doha: A woman gave birth to a baby on a Qatar Airways flight. The Ugandan national, who works in Saudi Arabia, gave birth to a baby girl on board the plane. The incident came to light in a tweet from Dr Aisha Katib, a professor at the University of Toronto who was on board the plane and took the lead in caring for the young woman.
The baby was born on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Entebbe, Uganda, on December 5. The Ugandan woman was returning home from childbirth when she was 35 weeks pregnant. ‘I woke up from the sluggishness of the journey when I heard the voice of the cabin crew through the intercom asking if there was anyone among the passengers who was a doctor. Looking at the part where the sound was heard, I saw a small crowd. It was initially thought that one of the passengers had suffered a heart attack or something. When he reached the spot, he saw a young woman lying in labor in the seat of the plane. The young woman was lying with her head in the corridor of the plane and her legs near the window. The baby was coming out. A pediatrician and another nurse, members of Doctors Without Borders, came to the rescue. Within minutes, part of the plane was converted into a labor room. The newborn baby was examined by a pediatrician. The mother and baby are healthy and safe. Everyone welcomed the good news with applause and applause. Aisha Katib describes.
As a miracle of the sky, the baby was named Miracle and later renamed Miracle Aisha after the doctor.
