This is a story you are not likely to hear every day.

A woman recently went to sleep with a headache and ended up being placed in an induced coma. She woke up four days later to find that she had unknowingly given birth a little girl.

Ebony Steveson who is just 18 years old, was completely unaware that she was even pregnant when she went to bed feeling a bit ill in December last year.

Her health suddenly took a turn for the worse and was rushed into hospital where medics placed her in an induced coma.

The teen woke up on 4 days later and was stunned to learn that she was now the mother of a little girl.

The student had no idea she was even pregnant and says she didn’t have a baby bump or morning sickness. She hadn’t missed any periods either!

Ebony also didn’t know that she has a rare condition called uterus didelphys – which basically means that she was born with two uteruses.

 Due to having two uteruses she continued to have periods as normal, leaving her unaware she was pregnant.

After being taken to Hospital following a number of seizures, tests showed that she was pregnant and had suffered from preeclampsia, which was causing the seizures.

An emergency caesarean section was carried out on 3 December, resulting in the birth of a little girl weighing 7lbs 10oz.

The new Mom woke up 6 December to the surprising news that she was now a Mother.

 After the initial shock wore off, she started bonding with the little girl, who she named Elodie.

“I didn’t think I even wanted kids,” she said. “At least not for another 10 years and never expected to be a young mum.

“Waking up from a coma to be told I had been pregnant and had given birth to a baby girl was overwhelming to say the least.

“Meeting my baby was so surreal. It felt like an out of body experience.

“I worried I wouldn’t bond with my daughter because I had no time to get my head around her arrival, but I think she’s amazing.

“It’s an absolute miracle. I wouldn’t change Elodie for the world.”

The new Mother says the last thing she can remember is going to bed on the 2 December and then waking up a few days later being told she had given birth. But her Mother Sheree, 39, has been by her side to give her some insight into what happened

Sheree said: “At around 10pm that night I heard Ebony shout down to me that her headache had gotten really bad.

“She started being sick, so I rushed her into the bathroom and before I knew it she was having a seizure on the bathroom floor.

“I rang 999 immediately as she’d never had anything like this before.”

While waiting for the paramedics, Ebony had 5 more seizures in just five minutes. When they arrived, they asked if she could be pregnant, but Sheree told them ‘no’.

“Despite me insisting she couldn’t be pregnant, the paramedics were certain she was, and to my shock a bump had appeared at her stomach,” Sheree said.

They think the ferocity of the seizures could have caused the baby to move, making it suddenly visible.”

Thinking back to  the moment she came around from the coma and was told that she was a mum, Ebony added: “When I woke up I remember the nurses telling me I had a baby, and before I knew it they’d put her on my chest.

“It sounds awful now, but I asked them to take her away as I was so confused and sure they’d made a mistake.

“But my mum explained it all to me while the nurses were there, and they gave my little girl back to me to hold properly for the first time.

Although I was so confused – and pretty scared – it was a beautiful moment and she was so quiet.”

What an incredible story!
