Update: February 2019
The woman until the birth did not know that she was pregnant
Katerina Kropas, a 23-year-old resident of Massachusetts due
severe back pain went to the hospital. To the surprise of the medics and
the patient, after being examined at the reception, she was sent to
maternity unit and an hour later gave birth to a child. �”About the upcoming
Maternity I was informed at 10:15, and my daughter was born at 11:06 “, –
the newly made mother told reporters.
According to Katerina, she didn’t feel any
signs of pregnancy, and weight gain explained its good
with appetite, addiction is tasty and there is a lot to eat. Despite the fact that
no American medical observation passed, no
prenatal examinations were not conducted, the child was born
The administration of the clinic where the woman turned (South Shore),
noted, “We have 1-2 women each year complaining about
health, not knowing that they are pregnant. This usually happens before
deadline of 20 weeks. But this case is unique because a woman in an hour
before giving birth, she was unaware of her position. ” British Medical
a journal in 2012 published a study confirming that 2
women from 1000 to approximately 20 weeks of pregnancy do not suspect
about it. The explanation for this strange phenomenon can be
- rarely possible in early pregnancy
insignificant discharge in terms of the proposed menstruation,
therefore, women do not perceive scant periods for delay (see
first signs of pregnancy before the delay)
- in case of prolonged irregular menstruation, a woman
may perceive the absence of menstruation as the norm to which
got used to
- overweight women may not care for growing
stomach or not notice fetal movement
- toxemia in the first trimester of pregnancy a woman may not
experience or nausea during pregnancy be perceived as
nutritional errors, food poisoning
- most likely it is women who do not have basic knowledge
the physiology of the female body, and not caring about their health,
since today a reliable pregnancy test is sold in
any pharmacy or supermarket and is not expensive.
