Fatawmatt Kaba barely uttered a sound as she gave birth to her baby boy 38,000 feet in the air on a non-stop New York City-bound South African Airways plane on Saturday. As a matter of fact, the young woman gave two pushes and the baby glided right on through, the Daily Mail reports.

Kaba, who is married to 38-year-old Gambian diplomat, Abubakary Jawara, was traveling alone. It was the very first time Kaba had ventured away from her homeland of Angola and planned on staying with relatives in the Bronx, N.Y., for a three-month visit, then return back to her husband.

Luckily for the young woman, when she began to experience the warnings that come with impending motherhood, there was a doctor on board the plane. The airline’s crew went on the flight’s loudspeaker and requested the assistance of a physician. Dr. Julie Williamson, a pediatric anesthesiologist answered the crew member’s call. She was returning from a medical conference along with another colleague, Dr. Steve Paridon. There were also two nurses on board to offer any assistance to Drs. Williamson and Paridon.
