A Model 23, Gave Birth Baby Into The Bathroom, She Didn’t Feeling Pregnant Before
She unexpectedly welcomed daughter Isla to the world, showing no signs of pregnancy. Despite she used ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴇᴘᴛɪᴠᴇ ɪɴᴊᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴs in the lead up to the birth. Her body hadn’t changed at all in the months leading up to the discovery. She said she hadn’t gone up a dress size and still fit comfortably into her bras and her routine hadn’t changed.
She showed no signs of pregnancy, with no sɪᴄᴋɴᴇss, baby bump or cravings, and only felt ill on the day Isla was born. Her parner Carty didn’t believe in his eyes that she was being pregnancy. She having what is termed a cryptic pregnancy. Langmaid went to the bathroom, and ten minutes later was holding Isla in her arms, who weighed a healthy 3.6 kilograms. It was the biggest shock of her life.
Carty heard the commotion in the bathroom and was shocked at what he found inside. By the time Dan entered the bathroom, Erin was already giving life to the baby. Childbirth did not last longer than 10 minutes.
‘I heard a big scream and I ran in there and opened the door and I was worried about her, and then I saw the little one and I thought ”hang on, there’re two”,’ Mr Carty said.
After the birth, Isla wasn’t breathing and started turning blue, forcing Mr Carty to make a frantic call to emergency services which saved their baby girl’s life. The call handler asked him how many weeks his girlfriend had been pregnant, but Dan couldn’t answer because they had no idea that Erin was pregnant.
It was the first time Dan had given first aid to a baby, but with the help of a call manager, he managed to save his little girl’s life. Soon after, ᴀᴍʙᴜʟᴀɴᴄᴇs also arrived and took the mother and newborn to the hospital. Doctors found that Erin had experienced a so-called “hidden pregnancy”.
Isla was born at 37 weeks. This case is rare, in one in 2500 cases women don’t know they are pregnant until they start giving birth. ‘This is our life now and we wouldn’t change it,’ Ms Langmaid said.
