The pregnancy test was negative… Then I gave birth in a hotel toilet! 😱- BBC


Caller: Hiya, can I have an ambulance at the Brittania hotel at Portland street please? Dispatcher: Is the patient breathing? Caller: Yeah.
Dispatcher: Tell me exactly what happened. Erm, my friend, well, she’s not been well all day and then she’s literally just had a baby. Dispatcher: So she actually had a baby? Yeah. When? About two, three minutes ago? How many weeks pregnant was she? Erm, actually I don’t know. Because she didn’t actually know she was pregnant. Right, is baby fine? It seems fine, erm It’s crying and it’s screaming and everything. [baby’s cries overheard] Narrator: An ambulance is dispatched immediately. They’re ten minutes away, but we’ll also need a clinician with additional skills. John, an advanced paramedic, is three minutes from the hotel. Yes, 498. Dispatch: 498, just getting details of a female giving birth at the Brittania Hotel. We have got alpha 578 running also. Am I alright to put you on this job, please? Over. Yeah, absolutely. No problem. If I get any further details, I will let you know. Thanks. Roger received, thanks Dispatch: So make sure the cord is not too wrapped around the baby’s neck. The baby between the mother’s legs? Yeah. – Yeah
– Yeah, okay, so we’re gonna watch the baby closely for three minutes, then tie the cord with a string or shoelace. Do you know how long they’re gonna be? We’re coming as quickly as we can. Don’t worry, okay? I know it feels like a lifetime, but you’re both doin’ so well. Tie the string tightly around the umbilical cord about six inches from the baby but do not pu- tie it now and tell me when it’s done. Okay? Right, I’ve tied it. Okay, well done, you are doing so well. What’s your name? – It’s Rebecca.
– Pardon? Rebecca. Rebecca, you’re doing absolutely brilliantly, okay? So do not pull the cord, okay? It’s important for you to watch the baby and the mother to make sure that they’re both okay. Okay? If anything changes, tell me immediately, okay? Yeah, erm, are they coming upstairs
or do I need to go out? No, I have told him that you’re in room 442. [dramatic music] Dispatch: How are they both doing? Caller: You’ve got a ginger. Caller: Right, they’re here. Hullo, Hiya. – Hello
– Hiya Yeah, they’re just here now. Thank you. Crikey, what’s going on Stacey? I’ve had, like, really bad back pain. The next thing I know, I’m pushing and then I can feel like a head on me. And you had no idea you were pregnant? Well, I’ve been at the doctor’s today because I have got, like, a bump but they said the pregnancy test said no, negative. So they were like we’ll test you to see if you’ve got a cyst or anything. Right. Okay. And what have we got? – A little girl.
– A little girl! Well, she looks nice and pink and happy Just keep her covered up. Most important thing is keeping her warm for the time being, all right? Yes, alright. Has your placenta come out? Yeah, it’s right here. Right. Okay, so So this is all a bit of a shock, then, isn’t it? What were you doing here ? For a Harry Potter convention that we were at. Yeah Well we were. Right. Mother: You’re gonna like your Harry Potter, aren’t you? Okeydokey. Right. Okay, let’s have this little one’s cord. We’ll get ever…pardon? She looks really white. It’s all right. She’ll start to pink up. Don’t worry. She’s lovely and pink. – Let’s keep her wrapped up.
– Yeah Let me pick this back up. Just watch your step because there’s loads of blood on the floor, okay? I’m really sorry. You’re gonna have blood everywhere. Staff: It’s alright, don’t worry about it. Let’s get you sat down and comfortable. Stacey, do you want me to ring Tom? Let’s have a good look at it. – Are you in any pain?
– A little. Are you? Been in pain all day as well. So I’m just gonna clip this. [baby cries] Just cut this cord So like I said, the important thing is keeping her nice and warm now so we’re gonna wrap her up in some nice blankets. Get a little hat on her head. Yeah, let’s – come here, sweet Okay, you keep a nice look on – oh, she’s a cutie I’m just gonna keep doing this blood pressure. Okay, Stacy, so… Hermione? We’ll go with that? Stick with the Harry Potter theme. You can ring him in a minute, let’s get you sorted out first. We just need to make sure everything’s all right. She took a pregnancy test this morning. She took a pregnancy test and they’ve all said negative But then just before the crew got there she went “Oh, Stacey it’s a little ginger.” – How old was she?
– 25. Had no idea. Could you imagine that, though? Like me, at 25. Me, now – well, 26 Luckily she’s in a hotel and so she’s got like, towels everywhere. Well, she won’t even have, like, a nappy. – Nothing.
– Not a bottle, or… She had no problem medically? Not a cold, or…? I’m not being funny, but when I was – there was absolutely no mistaking that I was pregnant. Literally, what happened. I was like a potato.

  1. This touched my heart. The mom is amazing and let me tell u im 27 now and I knew i was preg but carried 2mos early and staying in labor from the 18th of Nov to the day I had my baby girl on the 21st #WomenAreAmazingGiftsFrom God

  2. There was this one woman who was about 200-300 pds and she had been getting stomach aches, well when she went to the hospital she ended up having triplets and this woman is like 56 too. Crazy how these type of things happen

  3. A pregnancy test doesn't always work but i'm surprised you don't even think of going to the doctor after 3 or 4 months of mother nature not paying you a visit,but i really don't know i'm glad the mother and the baby are ok tho.
    Edit:that must been so scary to experience i mean i'm scared of my period lol😂

  4. Why does she has'nt even know that she was pregnant? I mean there's an ultrasound if pregnacy test does'nt work.. but anyways, I am happy that they are both safe..

  5. I visited my friend after not seeing her for six years, I delivered her baby twenty minutes later she didn’t know she was pregnant. The cord was wrapped around her neck and the placenta wasn’t coming out. By the time the ambulance came she lost six pints of blood and nearly died.

  6. Giving birth is really painful even on medication, how the hell did she give birth with no pain reliever and not scream, even patients with the pain meds scream how did nobody call 911 when they heard her yelling, and doesn’t giving birth take hours…?????

  7. I’m almost 14 weeks pregnant and there’s already no mistaking that I’m pregnant 😅 but I have to say that if I didn’t know i was pregnant and just gave birth I wouldn’t be as amazing as she was 💕

  8. Strange, she didn't know about it even after 8 months of having no menstruation cycle.. One must get brain believing it. Sorry for her pain nd appreciate the amb corp.

  9. lets hope the baby's not stupid as her name us literally the definition of smart! where my potterheads at? also the child is so cute I have full respect for the mother!!!!! xx

  10. Mother: Hey Mum could you pick us up?
    Her Mum: Why what happed?
    Mother: Oh well you see I just had a baby and I kinda want to go home.

  11. this is what happened with my mum when she gave birth to me. all tests negative and since shes a thick girl there was no bump .im 16 and till this day i dont know my farther because my mum wasnt with him for long

  12. That emergency dispatch worker was absolutely lovely. 😊💕
    Let's show some appreciation for her warm, kind and comforting bedside manner!
    👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  13. Try the “Gοfαt Fanvuko” (Goοgle it) when you`re an infertile couple. I was unhappy by the outcomes that I was got from western medicine. I was able to achieve pregnancy right after a few months of undergoing acupuncture treatment plans and a healthy diet. Witnessing my year old daughter wandering around the house is really wonderful. To understand more about this outstanding formula, check out Goοgle..

  14. Oh I'm so happy to read all these nice comments. I was expecting most people to judge her for not knowing and being rude to her. What a nice suprise ❤️
    (sorry for my english, I'm still learning)

  15. She is so sweet. Apologies for the blood and mess! I wish her and her gorgeous daughter the best of luck in the future! 💖🌹

  16. I know it's not funny, but I just imagine the new father's grandparents' faces when they found out… Also this is a really, really cute baby.

  17. I look at the description and scroll all the way down and see the category and it says Entertainment what ENTERTAINMENT

  18. “It’s crying and it’s screaming and everything”
    Well what do you expect from a baby that joins this world of ours?
