The whole thing is magical, and it truly releases the inner warriors in women after a grueling 9 months of pregnancy.

The labor isn't so magical, however...


The labor of childbirth is known for being one of the most painful things that the human body can experience.

It is the very thing most women dread.

A combination of intense muscle tightening, abdomen cramps, pain in the torso and pelvic area, back pain, contractions from the uterus, and, eventually, pushing a baby out... It's certainly no walk in the park.

Labor is different for every woman.

Despite the fact that labor is pretty much guaranteed to be painful, it varies slightly for every woman; no labor is the same.

This can depend on the woman's genetics...

As well as her tolerance to pain, her body type, and her health.

But it can also depend on the size of the baby...

This is an important factor when it comes to giving birth naturally, because sometimes, it's physically impossible.

But one woman recently made headlines.

After going into a labour in the middle of a flight.

And the woman did not even know she was pregnant.

Utah woman, Lavinia Mounga, was flying to Honolulu when the incident happened.

She was flying from Salt Lake City with her family.

When she noticed something strange...

She was contractions.

Earlier that day she had no idea what was to come.

Before her flight she even tweeted: "Hey let's getawaaaaaaaaay."

Her next tweet would be about the birth of her child.

When she wrote: "Overwhelmed in the best way."

Her story went viral.

After another passenger on the flight caught the entire thing and shared it on TikTok.

TikTok user, Julia Bernice, shared the video wriitng: "A baby was just born on this plane!".

Thankfully there were many medical professionals on the plane.

Such as Lani Bamfield, a nurse from Kansas City.

Bamfield wrote:

If anyone would like to know how our trip to Hawaii is going… here's how it started.
We delivered a 26-27 weeker in the airplane bathroom, in the middle of the ocean, with three NICU nurses, a Physicians assistant, and a family medicine doctor we were able to make it THREE HOURS before we could finally land but the baby and mom did great.

"God was definitely up there with us."

And the baby has been described by many as a miracle.

Mounga's sister has launched a GoFundMe to pay for their medical costs, until the family can return to Utah.

Baby is currently in the NICU growing stronger and stronger each day. Lavi & baby will be staying in Hawaii longer while baby gets healthy enough to fly back home to Utah. The money donated will be used to help alleviate some of the financial burden of the medical bills as baby will be in the hospital until end of May/June. We love our little baby Raymond Kaimana Wade Kobe Lavaki Mounga and can't wait til we are able to bring him back home to Utah.
