When the baby was being born,I was working on my project.
Is this a correct sentence?

Thanks for help

It is a correct sentence, yes, but it would be more usual to say "While" instead of "When". "When" tends to imply a complete action, so you're led to expect something like "When the baby was born ...". Since you put "being born", I'd change "When" to "While".

It is better to say it actively

While the mother gave birth to a baby, I was working on my project.
' born ' is a strange word. It is a ' verb ' used in passive without ' by '. Because you can't turn the passive into active as ' born ' is NOT the past participle of ' bear '

Since this is the case, use it actively is more appropriate unless we used the past tense.

eg. The baby was born ........Emotion: smile
