Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/.  A seven-month pregnant woman gave birth to a baby girl on board a train travelling from Zamiin Uud to Ulaanbaatar on the night of January 13, Tuesday. 

At around 00.23 AM, the baby’s mother went into labor and required medical assistance. However, she could not wait to reach the hospital, so the train staff located a woman on board who has experience with childbirth delivery.
