Baby Surprise! Woman Did Not Suspect For 9 Months That She Was Carrying A Child
A lot of babies set foot on planet daily. According to “The World Counts,” around 350,000 babies are born every day. Even though it is the official data, it is hard to believe in this fact, as the number is really huge.
Sometimes, babies come to this world as a surprise. This is what happened with Emma Crofts-Wilson, the 19-year-old woman from New Zealand. She had no idea for 9 months she was carrying a baby.

One day, she was home alone and suddenly went into labor. Everything started with the intense stomach and lower back pains the night before, but she thought it was just a regular stomach ache. Later, Emma felt an urge to push and saw her baby’s head popping out.
The woman gave birth by herself and even managed to cut the umbilical cord with kitchen scissors.
She immediately texted her mom:
Please don’t be mad or angry, but I’ve just had a baby. I don’t know what to do.
Her daughter, Hannah-Marie Teira, is now 11 months old.
In fact, medical facts of such cases really exist, and women can go full nine months without knowing that they are pregnant. It happens one time in 2,500 cases, and this phenomenon is called “cryptic pregnancy,” or “pregnancy denial.”
