Graphic: Support the RFDS this Christmas

Gratitude and tears of joy were shared when Katanning woman Chenoa Chapman reunited with the flight nurse who delivered her baby in an RFDS aircraft after landing at Jandakot Airport in May.   

In May this year, 29-year-old Chenoa Chapman who was pregnant with her third child, certainly did not expect the RFDS would help bring her son into the world - let alone deliver in an RFDS aircraft.

Katanning is a regional town located 277km south-west of Perth in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

In what was a heartwarming and touching reunion at Jandakot Airport five months later in October, baby Spencer was back in the arms of RFDS flight nurse and midwife Libby Stearne who helped bring him into the world.
