It was more than a regular flight for all on board the Turkish airline when Nafi Diaby went into labor mid-flight at an altitude of 12,800m. During the flight, the labor pain intensified, and the cabin crew remained proactive in helping the 28week pregnant Nafi Diaby.
The cabin crew immediately responded to assist the woman, Nafi Diaby, and deliver her baby. The flight attendants made the most of the plane’s available seats to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
According to flight attendant Bouthayna Inanir, she initially thought that the woman was experiencing a miscarriage. However, she knew she had to help when she saw the baby. Cabin crew, Inanir said that she had to grab the child and hand it over to her mother.
The airlines released a statement on their Twitter account to announce the good news about the baby. They also posted photos of the newborn with the flight crew. The mother and her child are under medical assistance on arriving at the Ouagadougou Airport. Both the mother and her child are in good health.
Most airlines allow pregnant women who are already at least 28 weeks pregnant to travel up to the 36th week. According to Turkish Airlines, women expecting a child can travel with a doctor’s report stating that they’re fit to carry on a plane. However, even if they have clearance, they will not be able to travel after that.
People worldwide praised the flight crew and the woman for their efforts. They also commended the baby for being born prematurely. However, some people were additionally surprised by the location of the baby’s birth. The eager netizens further asked what nationality the child would be.
An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you should write more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people dont discuss these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!
