Birth can happen anywhere at any time, with labor beginning often unexpectedly and sometimes in a very inconvenient place. Of course, if you don’t know you’re pregnant, labor is always unexpected! That’s the surprising situation Ada Guan found herself in when she gave birth on a plane headed toward Tokyo!
Ada and her boyfriend were on their way from Canada to Japan for a vacation when she began having stomach pain. She was bumped up to business class, but it soon became apparent she was in labor. She delivered a beautiful baby girl with the help of a doctor that happened to be aboard the plane. Everyone cheered!
While very uncommon, surprise births and symptomless pregnancies can and do occur.
Talk about a memorable vacation! I wonder if the airline charged them an extra seat.
