Delivering a baby is not an easy task, and if you’re made to push out a baby from you thousands of feet in the air, you’re probably not going to enjoy it one bit. Nafi Diaby will tell you why.
28 weeks pregnant Nafi had no idea that she would need to deliver her child immediately when she boarded her Turkish Airlines flight TK538 from Conarky. Thankully, the crew of the aircraft was there to save the day.
The airline crew noticed that she was in pain, and as they got the message across the flight, passenger stepped in to help Nafi deliver her child. Aaaaaand! A baby girl was born 🙂
The baby girl is called Kadiju, and she’s perfect! Both baby and mother were taken to a hospital in Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou. The airline tells us that both mother and baby are exhausted, but in great health. Woohoo!
Oh guess what? Little Kadiju gets a “born on international waters” on her birth certificate. How cute is that?!
