With no doctor aboard, Turkish Airlines staff assisted the mother through labor, which took place in Kuwaiti airspace, Reuters reported. Video shows the crew posing with the tiny baby, who was wearing a pink hat and was wrapped in a blanket.

It was the third child for Noori and husband Taj Moh Hammat, who named their baby Havva, which translates to Eve, the Evening Standard reported.

The plane carried Afghans who worked with the UK, according to Reuters.
