A plane passenger has shared the incredible moment a mum-to-be gave birth mid-flight – before the whole cabin applauded her efforts.

Julia Hansen, from the US, was travelling with her friend on a flight yesterday (April 29) when the journey was delayed for three hours after the woman gave the birth.

In the heartwarming video she posted on TikTok, with 1.2 million views, the cabin crew manager can be heard saying: "As most of you have probably heard, we just had a child birth on the aircraft, let's a nice round of applause for the mother. Congratulations."

The passengers clap and cheer for the news as they remain in the seats to allow the air hostesses to assist the new mother.

A team of emergency staff board the plane with an oxygen tank and equipment as they head towards the back of the plane to check on the baby and the mum.

A few minutes later, the staff are able to disembark the pair on a wheelchair and get them into an ambulance.

Passengers give their well wishes to the woman as she makes her way to the exit.

The newborn can be heard crying in the background as they pass.

Julia explained in the comments: "The mother and baby were perfectly healthy when they got off the plane.

"To those wondering how she was able to fly in her third trimester, I sat next to her dad on the plane and he said they didn't even know she was pregnant."

Some viewers were left in tears as one said: "The only time it's okay to clap when the plane lands."

Others speculated on the newborn's name, place of birth, and wondered if the baby will get free rides for life.

According to the US State Department, a child born in international waters should list place of birth as "at sea"; if a child is born in flight in a region which no country claims, he or she would officially be classified as born "in the air".
