Passengers Rush To Help Woman Who Gave Birth During Flight To Hawaii, Completely Unaware That She Was Pregnant

A woman who did not even know she was pregnant has given birth on a flight from Salt Lake City to Hawaii.


Lavinia "Lavi" Mounga had no idea she was pregnant, but out of nowhere, her baby appeared on the flight at 35,000 feet.


Thankfully many people were on hand to give assistance including, a doctor, Dr. Dale Glenn, and three nurses.


The mother told reporters:


"I didn't know I was pregnant and this guy just came out of nowhere. It has been very overwhelming, and I'm just so lucky that there were three NICU nurses and a doctor on the plane to help me, and help stabilize him and make sure he was OK for the duration of the flight."


Newborn baby Raymond Mounga has some new aunties and an uncle for life, according to mom Lavinia “Lavi” Mounga, who...

Dr. Glenn said:


"We've had calls like this before. Usually, they're pretty clear, you know, 'Is there a doctor on board?' This call was not like this. This call was, 'Medical! Um, help!'" The idea that this baby had a doctor and three NICU nurses is nothing short of miraculous. It blows me away as a doctor. I don't think people realize how rare this is; there have only been about sixty babies born on airplanes in history."


He went on to say:


This is literally one in a billion chance kind of thing. Basically, you need somebody to watch the mom, too, because we have two patients, not just one. So someone's got to help cut the cord, someone's got to help deliver the placenta, we've got to check vital signs on mom. Meanwhile we're trying to resuscitate baby, make sure baby's breathing, get baby warmed up. That's a lot of work to do, and we're all trying to work in a very small, confined space in an airplane, which is pretty challenging. But the teamwork was great."


He added:


"I had to kind of stop and say something to them 'Everything is alright, we're going to make it' and I could see the weight drop off people's shoulders. They wanted to know but were afraid to ask. The support we got from every person on that plane...there was so much aloha."


Both mother and baby were cared for at a local hospital and then released with a full bill of health.
