Woman Gives Birth at 34,000 Feet on Flight From Ghana to Washington DC

February 3, 2022

Passengers were shocked, then relieved, when a woman went into labor on a trans-Atlantic flight from Ghana to Washington DC. Luckily, a doctor and nurse were on board and able to help aid the delivery, with another flight attendant who is a trained nurse. Despite being 34,000 feet in the air, Dr. Stephen Ansah-Addo and nurse Nana Adawa Taki answered the call. They set up a makeshift delivery room on the floor of the galley, and two hours later, little baby Nolan was born happy and healthy.
