A teenager who didn’t have a clue she was pregnant fell into a coma and woke up with a baby.
Ebony Stevenson, 18, initially suffered from a splitting headache in early December last year but then suffered a series of seizures and was rushed to hospital where doctors put her into a coma.
She then woke up on December 6 to discover she had given birth to her gorgeous baby Elodie.
All the time the student was pregnant she never missed a period, didn’t develop a baby bump or had morning sickness.
Ebony told the Star on Sunday: “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.”
Doctors discovered Ebony had a rare condition called uterus didelphys where the person has two uteruses. Elodie had grown unnoticed in the one towards Ebony’s back.
Ebony had an emergency caesarean and Elodie was born on December 3, just three hours after her first seizure.
Sheree and Ebony’s grandmother Geraldine initially looked after the newborn for four days while Ebony was in the coma.
When nurses first presented Ebony with her baby she thought they had made a mistake but after Sheree explained what had happened mother and daughter soon bonded.
