'I asked them to take it away': UK teen wakes from coma to discover she's had a baby

A UK teenager who went into a coma woke up four days later to a baby girl she didn't know she was pregnant with.

Yahoo News reports that Ebony Stevenson, 18, from Manchester, was admitted to the hospital on December 2, 2018.

She suffered a series of seizures and was placed into an induced coma. During this time, doctors performed an emergency caesarean section.

Her mother told Yahoo that Ms Stevenson had started vomiting, and shortly after she rushed to the bathroom, had begun to seizure.

"I rang 999 immediately as she'd never had anything like this before," she explained. "In the five minutes it took the ambulance to arrive, Ebony had five more seizures."

At 1:32am on December 3 (local time), doctors performed the C-section, delivering Ms Stevenson's baby girl, who weighed 3.2kg.

On December 6, Ms Stevenson woke up and learned about her new baby.

"When I woke up I remember the nurses telling me I had a baby, and before I knew it they'd put her on my chest," Ms Stevenson told Yahoo.

"It sounds awful now, but I asked them to take her away as I was so confused and sure they'd made a mistake."

But after her mother explained what had happened, nurses gave the little girl back to Ms Stevenson to hold.

Ms Stevenson had had no idea she was pregnant, as she hadn't developed a bump, missed a period, or noticed any other side effects of the pregnancy.

"Waking up from a coma to be told I had been pregnant and had given birth to a baby girl was so overwhelming, to say the least."

Yahoo report she named her baby Elodie, and claimed her birth "is an absolute miracle."
