Pregnancy labour

Case Study

Premature Labour



The International SOS Assistance Centre received a call from a member who was 25 weeks into her pregnancy. She had suffered ruptured membranes and went into premature labour. We needed to authorise an evacuation from her employer as she was not travelling for business.

  • We contacted her company to let them know of the situation and got authorisation to evacuate even though she was not on business.
  • We evacuated her from Lanzarote, Spain to Las Palmas.
  • Her baby was born prematurely in our hospital of choice in Las Palmas. This allowed us to monitor the baby closely in hospital.
  • After one month in intensive care, the baby was stable and strong enough to travel. We safely repatriated him by Air Ambulance to the UK.


The father commented:

Thanks to the entire team that made this transfer possible – my baby and wife’s journey was immaculately organised. My baby was extremely well looked after and everything ran like clockwork.
