Highly resourceful woman has the wildest birth story of all time

Highly resourceful woman has the wildest birth story of all time

The incident seems to be little shocking but this really happened and the lady is 22-year-old Tia Freeman.

Since the thread went viral, people have both praised and criticized Freeman's decisions, calling her courageous and resourceful on one end and irresponsible and reckless on the other.

Freeman, an analyst for the U.S. Air Force, did not know she was pregnant until she was in her third trimester, because her birth control caused her to not have a menstrual cycle.

Freeman then got into the bathtub and had a water birth; she used the internet to teach her to cut the umbilical cord. So instead of visiting a doctor she boarded the flight. However, she went into labour during a stopover at Istanbul, Turkey. However, she began cramping with an hour left before landing and was unsure if it was the salmon or the pregnancy. I just knew I had food poisoning.

The mom went on to explain that she wasn't about to waste that global flight money even after her discovery, so on March 7, she hopped on the 14-hour flight.


Instead of calling for help, she filled up the bath in her hotel suite and set up her laptop so she could watch YouTube videos of childbirth. Thanks to some internet searches and YouTube tutorials, she looked for a comfortable birth position and got started. There is no way in the world I'm not in labor because I can barely standup at this point. "Like I just did what I had to do".

"Luckily it happened pretty quickly".

"I was like 'Well don't people have babies every day?"

"This is a 14hr flight & there was a complimentary meal but everything had meat in it & you know I'm a vegetarian so I was like I can't eat this", She said, but she made a decision to chance it anyway. After waiting for the placenta to pass, she dropped that into a sanitation baggie provided by the hotel, then boiled some shoelaces in the electric kettle in the room to sterilize and use them as cord clamps. She says she cleaned up, breastfed her son, and went to sleep.

After a Google search, she couldn't determine if she was actually in labor since her water hadn't broken, but she knew one thing for sure: She was not about to have her child on the floor of the airport. Wondering how she managed to do it all by herself? "So I was like if the boy comes on time I should be all good in the hood", she said.
