Life is amazing: Lady delivers baby mid-air
Five days back there was a news report that a lady, 8 months pregnant, gave birth to a baby girl in mid air with the help of two doctors, who were without their usual tools and aids to deliver a..
INDIA IS full of amazing stories. One such fantastic cases that's bound to amaze all of us took place when a lady recently delivered a baby girl aboard an airplane during her air journey.
On a flight on a private airline from Kolkatta to Delhi Chitra Raghav, who was 8 months pregnant, was flying with her husband Sachin who is an HR Consultant in Kolkatta. Her due date was 8th of May and the couple was planning to have a normal delivery at a good hospital but as we all know that sometimes some things are planned by god, and no one can control what's in our fate.
That’s what happened with the couple. The flight departed as scheduled at 7.15 am but after sitting quietly for around 30 minutes Chitra told her husband that she was not feeling well and she wasn’t feeling comfortable. But Sachin consoled her saying that her due date was more than a month away and it could be just anxiety but situation became worse when Chitra could no longer bear her pain and discomfort and that’s when Sachin approached the Cabin Crew for urgent help.
So, without wasting any time the Cabin crew cleared the rear end of the cabin and made Chitra lie on a mattress. Two doctors aboard came acted swiftly and helped Chitra in delivering a baby girl at exactly at 9 am.
As there was no proper infrastructure and surgical tools to carry off an organized delivery, the process was handled in a great way by the doctors and they had to cut the umbilical cord with a blade and it was later tied with a rubber band.
Chitra could walk normally after 5 minutes of the delivery and as the flight landed, Chitra was rushed to a private Hospital in Gurgaon to provide her proper care needed after delivery. 
Both baby and mother are fine and in good health. Sachin thanked the doctors and whole Cabin crew for such great efforts and help. And the God bless the child indeed! She’s born to fly it seems.
