A mum who didn’t know she was pregnant has given birth to a baby girl after going into hospital for major stomach pains.

The 33-year-old, whose name has not been shared with the media, didn’t have any idea she was in labour even though she’d given birth twice before.

She was taken to the IPS Hospital in Capiatá, Paraguay, and told medics she was suffering severe abdominal pains.

Hospital director Dr Alba Ramos said the patient, who’s from Itauguá, was admitted at around 6 a.m. the morning of 16 October, and when she passed out, she was asked if she could possibly be pregnant.

The woman said no, but when she started bleeding heavily, she was treated by a gynaecologist who found that not only was she pregnant, but she was in labour and fully dilated.

There wasn’t time to take the mum-of-three to the city’s Maternity Hospital, so doctors delivered the baby girl, who was born weighing 3kg (6.6 lbs), there.

After the birth, the two were taken to the Maternity Hospital by ambulance for recovery, and they’re both doing well.

It’s estimated that one in 2,500 people don’t know they are pregnant until right before they have to give birth. There’s a thought to keep you up at night!

Not long ago, then-17-year-old Bri Blanton was rushed to hospital by her mum after when she woke up doubled over in pain.

Bri thought she had wet herself, but upon arrival at the hospital was told her waters had broken, and that she was pregnant and in labour. She said she had no bump, sickness or cravings during her entire pregnancy.

Just two hours later, she’d given birth.
