A woman who was eight months pregnant went into labor in the middle of a nine-hour flight from Dubai to the Philippines on Sunday.
We don’t know her name, but she looks like she’s in her 20s. And their website says you can fly until you’re 34 weeks pregnant. So about eight-and-a-half months, which seems kinda risky.
But luckily there were two nurses on board who helped deliver the baby . . . a little girl she named Haven. And there was another mom on board who had baby clothes and other supplies in her bag.
The flight was diverted to an airport India in order to get them to a hospital, which delayed everyone by about nine hours . . . but no one complained. And the good news is Haven’s perfectly healthy even though she was born five weeks premature.
And check this out. The airline decided to give the kid a MILLION frequent flyer miles, worth over $100,000. And they say they’ll never expire.
