A "miracle" birth a Canadian doctor helps deliver a Ugandan woman on a Qatari plane  The plane was carrying a flight from Qatar to Uganda, and while it was flying at an altitude of 35,000 feet over Egyptian airspace, the Canadian doctor, Aisha Al-Khatib, heard a distress call to help a woman in case of childbirth.  Dr. Aisha Al-Khatib experienced unique moments in her career as a doctor, as she helped deliver the baby “Miracle” on a Qatar Airways flight.  The plane was carrying a flight from Qatar to Uganda, and while flying at an altitude of 35,000 feet over Egyptian airspace, only one hour had passed from the time the plane took off from Doha, heading towards the Ugandan capital Entebbe, until Al-Khatib heard a distress call to help a woman in case of childbirth.  The pregnant woman was a Ugandan worker returning to her country via Qatar, where she works in Saudi Arabia, and she was pregnant in recent months and about to give birth.  The baby was born, at 35 weeks, and was named Mujeza Aisha, after the doctor who helped bring her into the world in good health.  Upon hearing the distress call, the Canadian doctor did not hesitate to move to help the woman, and Aisha Al-Khatib told " BBC News " that she saw "a crowd of people gathering around the patient", and that she initially thought that there was a critical illness, such as a heart attack.  Two other passengers joined the Canadian doctor, one an oncology nurse, and the other a pediatrician from Doctors Without Borders.  Al-Khatib added, "As I approached the patient, I saw this woman lying on a chair with her head toward the corridor and her feet toward the window about to give birth," while the newborn was screaming loudly.  After the birth process, the doctor looked at the child: "And her condition was stable, and I looked at the mother and she was fine."  And she continued, "That's why I said: Congratulations, it's a girl." Then the whole plane started clapping and cheering and it felt good, I'm on a plane and everyone is watching this."  "The best part of the story," she concluded, "is that she decided to name the baby after me."  The incident occurred on December 5 last, but Dr. Aisha's preoccupation over the past period with the high incidence of corona and the Omicron mutant prevented her from revealing the pictures and details of the birth until this week.
