WARRINGTON, ENGLAND: A woman has given birth unexpectedly in bed after mistaking labor pains for constipation. Before experiencing the “shock of her life”, Emily Graham, 27, woke up on January 13 with stomach symptoms resembling menstrual cramps.
The new mum, from Warrington, initially assumed the symptoms were just constipation, but they gradually increased, and she suddenly felt the need to ‘push’. Ash Green, her fiancé, immediately called an ambulance and the paramedics arrived just in time for Isabelle to be delivered to their bed.

According to Manchester Evening News, the 27-year-old retail assistant claims she was unaware of her pregnancy and worked long hours before giving birth, consumed alcohol at the Christmas party in his workplace and even rode Florida’s fastest rollercoaster three times in Orlando last September. , when she would have been about six months old. The pair rode the 155-foot-tall Jurassic World VelociCoaster in Universal Studios three times, which launched them to 70 mph in 2.4 seconds and is the fastest and tallest launch roller coaster in Florida.
When Green admitted he had felt the baby kicking weeks earlier, but “didn’t want to talk about it” since he assumed she was just “shaking” in her sleep, her fiancée was even more shocked. Earlier, Graham was warned that she may never get pregnant after being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a disorder that affects the functioning of the ovaries. Also, Isabelle gave birth while still in the amniotic sac called caul birth and less than one in 80,000 births results in such a birth. She felt no movement and had no significant pregnancy symptoms, such as a baby bump. She didn’t have a period, but given her PCOS, that wasn’t unusual.
“She is definitely a miracle”
Graham said: “She’s definitely a miracle. I was told I might not be able to have kids. We’ve talked about having some before and were disappointed, but we thought if it was going well but otherwise we will continue. But we are really happy now. We called the paramedics and they came just in time to deliver her, she was delivered home on the bed. If they had arrived even two minutes later my fiancé would have done it. I had the shock of my life to be honest. Holding her for the first time was amazing, there was no other time like it. C is blurry but at the same time I remember this part.
On January 13, at 9:50 a.m., Graham gave birth to Isabelle, a healthy 5-pound, 9-ounce baby girl. She was then taken to the hospital. Graham said medical professionals believed she was fully grown and the reason Isabelle was so small and Graham didn’t have a pregnancy bump was because of high blood pressure during her pregnancy. Graham added: “To be honest I didn’t really have any symptoms. I was throwing up at first but it would pass in a few days and I just thought I ate something fishy.”
She continued, “I didn’t have a bump and didn’t feel any movement. I haven’t had a period my entire pregnancy, but I can go months without, so I didn’t even have a period. didn’t think to ask me any questions. My fiancé phoned our parents when we were in the ambulance. At first they were like ‘oh congratulations, when is that?’ And we said no, she’s here now. Now that we’ve had Isabelle, I want another one. So fingers crossed we can have more kids.”
