From a Subway shop to making art, here are seven of the strangest and most peculiar places women have given the final push.

A woman gave birth mid-air shortly after a Turkish Airlines flight took off from Guinea bound for Burkina Faso. The cabin crew and passengers were on board to welcome the newborn, who has been named Kadiju.

A baby was delivered in a post office in Cambridgeshire, giving a whole new meaning to special deliveries. The staff made the most of their settings, using the parcel scales to weigh the newborn, named Dulce, who weighted the equivalent of an Β£8.22 first class parcel.
