Teenage Girl Gives Birth On The Toilet 3 Days After She Found Out She Was Pregnant
A teenager Aimee Stevens was 17 years old when she gave birth just 3 days after she was told she was 6 weeks pregnant.
The young mother was sitting on the toilet in the middle of the night and felt a ‘sudden relief’. She looked down and saw a baby’s legs and bum poking out of the toilet.
She had been told she was just five of six weeks pregnant, so her son’s arrival just three days later was a total shock.
Aimee scooped her baby out of the toilet and went to her bedroom before calling to wake up her mum, Becki, 40, who was sleeping downstairs and had no idea she was going to be a grandma.
Becki tied the umbilical cord with a strip of fabric she tore from Aimee’s work apron and called an ambulance as Aimee cut it with a pair of scissors.
Doctors reckon little 5lb 9oz Ché Andrew Cain was around 38 weeks – but don’t know for sure because mum Aimee flushed the placenta down the loo. Both mum and baby were totally healthy, and only had to spend three days in hospital, Metro UK reports.
Aimee from Calne, Wiltshire, said:
‘I was in the worst pain ever, and throwing up in the sink next to me, then there was a feeling of such relief.
‘I stood up and there he was in the u-bend, I could see little bent legs and a bum, so I picked him up and walked into my room.
‘I still think about that night a lot.’ ‘It’s so confusing, but when Ché first smiled at me it was just amazing, and I can’t think what I ever did before I had him now.’
Entirely unaware she was pregnant, Aimee, who turned 18 in May this year, had been studying for A levels and waiting tables at a restaurant while she was pregnant.
