Pregnant woman, 41, didn't realise she was pregnant until she 'saw baby's head coming out'



A 41-year-old mum didn't realise she was pregnant until she went into labour and saw her baby’s head.



Karla Akuhata, from New Zealand, thought her bloated tummy was due to work stresses or a medical condition.



It wasn't until she was suddenly struck with painful cramp pains during the night that she started "freaking out" and realised she was giving birth.



Her son was born right there, on the floor of Karla’s bedroom.







"There was a baby's head coming out of me, there was nothing else to do but go with it," she told the NZ Herald.



"It just made sense to stay there. He just lay there and nuzzled and made all the little baby noises.



"I kind of knew from the noises he was making that he was all good."







Karla has named her son Tamarangi. She said he was a "total surprise" and a "miracle".



Immediately after the birth, Karla called her mum, who had been making jokes about Karla being pregnant based on her bloating.



She told her mother: "Mum, you know how you were kidding that I might be pregnant? Well, I've just had a baby.”Latest Post
