A young woman who had no idea she was pregnant was shocked to see a baby’s head when investigating stomach pain.
Charlotte Dubard, from London, gained almost a stone form her sugar cravings but it was only when she began suffering severe stomach cramps that she decided to check what was going on.
She used her phone to take a video of her vagina and was stunned to see her baby’s hair sprouting out. The brave 24-year-old gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Elias, and says boyfriend Miguel Angel couldn’t believe it.
She said: “When Miguel came home, he screamed ‘Oh my god you found a baby in the street’!” “I started bawling and said ‘This is ours’.”
Charlotte and Elias were brought to the hospital and put in intensive care to make sure they were both ok.
She said: “It was only once we got to the hospital that I really registered what had happened. “I was so traumatised from the birth I had barely registered Elias at all.
“But then when we were waiting for the doctor, Miguel said ‘Look he has your nose’ and that’s when I suddenly realised he was ours.”
The young woman feels incredibly lucky to have such a healthy baby despite smoking, drinking and working 14 hour days throughout her mystery pregnancy.
Charlotte had cravings for sugar all of a sudden and gained roughly a stone not even realising she was pregnant. She continued to take the contraceptive pill while pregnant and claims during the pregnancy her periods remained normal.
“I call him my miracle baby because he is so healthy after all I put him through. “Also, so many things could have gone wrong with me giving birth alone but it all went remarkably smoothly.“
Nurses at the hospital said it could have ended very badly for Charlotte and Elias at home.
Charlotte added: “The midwives even asked me how I knew where to cut the umbilical cord because if I had done it wrong it could have been so dangerous.
Charlotte gave birth to Elias in her bath. “I have no idea how I knew exactly what to do, I guess instinct took over.”Charlotte says she didn’t even tell her mum straight away.
She said: “I actually didn’t tell my mum right away because she was working and I knew she wouldn’t be able to finish her shift if I told her. “I waited until the next day and she was so shocked.But my family have been so supportive. They’re very strict Catholics and they see Elias as a miracle. My grandmother says he is a little angel.”
The couple were planning to relocate to the United States but since the pregnancy they have decided to remain at home.
