Born on a cruise ship: Premature Baby Cruise Ship

Published: November 24, 2015

Born on a cruise ship: Premature Baby Cruise Ship, A baby who has spent the past two months in a Miami hospital after his premature birth on a cruise ship reached his final destination in Utah.

Baby Haiden arrived home Saturday in Ogden just before 8 p.m. after a flight that included medical equipment to ensure safe transport.

He was greeted by his parents, Emily and Chase Morgan, and a crowd of well-wishers. Many cheered and held up “welcome home” signs as medical staff took Haiden, who was in an incubator, off the aircraft.

The Morgans said it was surreal that their son was back with them.

“Even a week ago we weren’t sure if we were all going to be together,” Chase Morgan said.

The couple was on a seven-day cruise around the eastern Caribbean on Aug. 31 when Emily Morgan started experiencing contractions. The baby was not due until Dec. 19, and Morgan’s doctor had approved the trip.

They initially thought it might be false labor but called onboard medical staff when they saw blood. A doctor aboard the Royal Caribbean ship told her she couldn’t give birth because they were still 14 hours from the nearest port in Puerto Rico.

But holding back wasn’t an option, Emily Morgan said. It’s not totally clear what caused her to go into early labor, though doctors have said it might have been related to dehydration.

After the delivery, the doctors said Haiden wasn’t expected to live long. They brought the mother her 1 ½-pound baby, wrapped in towels wet from the birth.
