A teenager who did not know she was pregnant fell into comma after going to bed with a headache, only to wake up four days later to realize she has unknowingly giving birth to a surprise baby.

Ebony woke up on 6 December and was shocked to find out that she was now the mother of a little girl, Elodie.

The college student had no clue she was pregnant, saying she didn’t have a bump or morning sickness and hadn’t missed any periods.

Also unknown to Ebony was the fact she has a rare condition called uterus didelphys, which means she was born with two uteruses, and as she has two uteruses she continued to have periods as normal, leaving her unaware she was pregnant.

Ebony told The Star on Sunday that sfter the initial shock wore off, she began bonding with her little girl, who she named Elodie. She said:

“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 didn’t think I even wanted kids – at least not for another ten years – and I 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 mum said the last thing she can remember is going to bed on the 2 December and then waking up four days later being told she had given birth. Thankfully, her mum Sheree, 39, has was at home and realized athat her daughter was critically ill. She 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 five more seizures in 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.”

Ebony was rushed to Royal Oldham Hospital, near Manchester, where she was sedated before being rushed for an emergency caesarean that same morning.

Proud grandmother Sheree was the first to hold the surprise baby, who was born weighing 7lbs 10oz.

“It was a strange moment because I had no time to prepare for it,” Sheree said.

“I was over the moon that she was happy and healthy, but couldn’t help but worry about my own little girl who remained in a coma.”

For the next four days, Ebony was in an induced coma while Sheree and her mum – Ebony’s grandmother, Geraldine, 56 – stayed by her side, all the while looking after the little baby girl – who was later named Elodie.

On December 6, Ebony finally opened her eyes, and it was only then that she learnt of her miracle baby.

Recalling the moment she came around from the coma and was told that she was a mum, Ebony said:

“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.”

Now Ebony plans to go back to college and mum Sheree will help her take care of the newest family member.

“Although I had no time to prepare, I wouldn’t change what’s happened for the world,” said Ebony.

“I’m so excited to wake up and see her every morning, and to get to spend another day with my precious little miracle.”
