A woman who had no idea she was pregnant woke up in excruciating pain following a night out and gave birth to a baby in her bed.
Georgia Crowther, 20, said she had felt bloated but was completely unaware she was nine months pregnant with her second child when she began experiencing stomach cramps last Saturday.
She and her partner of four years, Calvin Home, 27, had returned home from a family dinner and had gone to bed when Georgia woke up at around 3am in excruciating pain.
After being told that an ambulance would take six hours to arrive, Georgia remained in bed whilst Calvin went downstairs to look after their two-year-old daughter, Isla-Mae.
When he came back upstairs to check on his partner, she was sat on the floor cradling a baby boy, reports the Manchester Evening News.
“Calvin was downstairs with our little girl and he thought I was asleep,” Georgia said.
“When he came up I was on the floor and I had just had the baby.
“He was on the phone to the ambulance and was like ‘Oh my God it’s a f****** baby.’
“I had been on the bed and I just felt like I really needed to push. I got on my hands and knees and was just biting on to the duvet.”
Calvin and Georgia’s baby son Vincent Home was born at 8.05am on Saturday morning.
Mum and baby were taken to Royal Oldham Hospital within 10 minutes of Georgia giving birth, where they remained for several days to ensure they were healthy.
Vincent was initially transferred to intensive care due to an infection but luckily, the family were able to return to their home in Chadderton on Saturday and Isla-Mae could meet her unexpected baby brother.
Georgia said that up until last Friday night she had been feeling absolutely fine, and had no idea she could be pregnant.
“Since I had my girl I have struggled really badly with my weight and when I was going out I was feeling really bloated,” she said.
“I don’t get periods anyway because I have had the contraceptive injection.
“People actually used to tell me I looked pregnant and I would get really upset and then when the baby came out I was like wow maybe that is why.”
Vincent’s grandparents, Traci and George Crowther say they are “absolutely over the moon” with their new grandson – after getting over the initial shock.
“There was a lot of swearing when I told my family,” Georgia said.
“There was a lot of shock. Everyone thought I was joking at first.”
The couple say their incredible friends and family have rallied round over the last week, to make sure they have all the clothes and supplies Vincent will need.
“All our families have got together to help as we were not prepared at all,” Georgia said.
“We have been given so much stuff it’s incredible. I just can’t wait for Vincent to meet his little sister.”
