Woman Goes to the Toilet in an Airplane, Comes Out with a Newborn Baby in Her Arms

Life has a funny way of shocking us when we least expect it. One woman had a once-in-a-lifetime experience during a flight that stunned people.

It is a unique story that Lavinia ‘Lavi’ Mounga has to tell. While flying, she gave birth to a baby boy, and the biggest surprise was that she wasn’t aware she was pregnant!

Mounga’s birth story went viral following the announcement of her unexpected aircraft pregnancy. The mother told her story of the incredible events that changed her life forever on The Ellen Show.

Having stomach problems and cramps on a Delta flight, she walked to the restroom. Mounga sat in her cubicle for a long time, suffering and in pain, completely unaware that she was in active labor.

Mounga explained:

As I boarded the plane, I couldn’t get comfortable enough to sleep. When I got out of bed, I had cramps and went to the bathroom. I briefly passed out. When I awoke, the baby was here.

Mounga awoke as a mother, which was a shock to her. She had a mysterious pregnancy, which is sometimes a sign of hormonal imbalances.

Due to this syndrome, women are unaware of their pregnancy until they are far along or in labor. Around 1 in 400 women suffer from it, which is more common than most people think.

Although Raymond was born miraculously, his trials and fight for survival had just begun. He was premature and 40,000 feet above the ground, far from medical help.

Due to his birth at 29 weeks, the baby and his mother needed assistance. It just so happened that five healthcare professionals were on board the plane, and they were all eager to help.

Lindsay Maughan, a physician assistant, heard Mounga’s sister-in-law crying for help. “I jumped up from my seat and raced up to the restroom,” Maughan explained.

Mounga was holding the infant when she opened the door. Three neonatal critical care nurses were on hand and got to work right away.

Nurses Lani Bamfield, Amanda Beeding, and Mimi Ho collected equipment from their surroundings. An Apple Watch monitored the baby’s heart rate while a shoelace assisted in cutting the umbilical cord.

In addition to microwave bottles, they also used other inventive ideas to keep Raymond warm. Dr. Dale Glenn, a family physician at Hawaii Pacific Health, also played a vital role in stabilizing the patients.

Glenn was asleep when his daughter reminded him that he needed to see a doctor. The NICU nurses’ presence was appreciated by him and he immediately offered his expertise.

According to the doctor, the baby was not breathing as well as they had hoped. The baby did not cry. In normal circumstances, you would expect to hear more noise. This was the quietest delivery I have ever seen.”

As the baby began to warm up and “pink up,” they built a makeshift incubator. He revealed:

“The first hour was quite difficult, but this is a tough kid.”

They also kept a close eye on Mounga, and were delighted to see that she was still stable despite the trauma. Although she was overwhelmed, she appreciated the crew’s efforts to assist her.

She stated:

“I’m so fortunate. He wouldn’t be here if they weren’t there.”

Glenn expressed gratitude for the chance to meet Mounga and her son. He was also given the honor of giving Baby Raymond a second name.

Kaimana is a lovely Hawaiian name that Glenn’s daughter came up with. It symbolized the strength of the sea, and all parties agreed that it was fitting because Raymond was born flying over the Pacific Ocean.

Mounga and her baby were treated at Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children. Medical staff visited them during their stay at the institution, which was an emotional experience for everyone.

Nurse Ho: “We were all in tears.”. She addressed us as aunts and called us family. They were overjoyed that the couple was healthy. Raymond and Mounga were doing well and had triumphed over an ordeal that only a few people have experienced.

“There have only been approximately sixty babies born aboard airplanes in history,” Glenn said. The crew was honored to be a part of such a unique experience.
