Wow! Woman Gives Birth On A Flight From Dubai To Philippines (Photo/video)
The new mother, who delivered her child two months premature, was flying from Dubai back to the Philippines on Cebu Pacific Air, a fellow passenger revealed on social media.
After her contractions started about five hours into the nine hour flight, attendants called for help, and two nurses on board came to the assistance of the expectant parent.
'She was already crowning, so she was brought to the more spacious area in front of the plane,' passenger Missy Umandal wrote on Facebook.
'We only heard one semi-loud screech, and a few seconds later, there were tinier, cute screeches, and it was when we knew the baby was born.'
Other passengers came to the aid of the woman, donating spare children's clothing items to dress the baby in after she was bathed in mineral water.
'It was immediately decided that an emergency landing in India was necessary to ensure the baby's health, as it was born two months earlier than expected,' Missy Umamdal said.
The baby was granted free lifetime travel with the airline since she was born on board one of their flights.
As India was the first country she touched down in after her birth, she will be granted Indian citizenship, but also hold a Philippines passport.
