Woman Who Didn't Realise She Was Pregnant Gives Birth On Holiday. See How It Happened


A bar representative who spent her summers partying in Magaluf has told of her shock when she gave birth to a little girl - after having no idea she was pregnant. Lindsey Howe, 23, woke up with sharp stomach pains one morning in the Spanish resort only to be told she was going through labour.

The office worker, from Manchester, had no idea she had fallen pregnant and had no symptoms that she was carrying a baby .

Lindsey had assumed her tiredness was due to working late nights and partying, but when medics explained her pains were contractions, she found out she was 31 weeks pregnant.

It transpired Lindsey had fallen pregnant a month before she flew out to Magaluf in April.
Lindsey, whose favourite tipple is beer and who, until discovering her pregnancy, normally smoked 15 cigarettes a day, was sent to the main hospital in Palma where they confirmed her pregnancy.

Lindsey gave birth naturally to a little girl called Hope at 5.28pm on Saturday, October 1.

Baby Hope was nine weeks premature, weighing just 3lb and 4oz, and was taken immediately to an intensive care unit and placed in an incubator.

Baby Hope was kept in intensive care until she had gained enough weight to be moved into a ‘medium care’ room with her own cot.
