A mother of four who did not know she was pregnant said she gave birth to a healthy baby girl in the toilet.

Grace Meachin said the birth of her last-born was during the period her husband was on the waiting list for a vasectomy.

She said she had no discernible bump, was taking her pill ‘religiously’ and still had periods, Daily Mail reports.

The 32-year-old woman from Littlehampton, West Sussex, made a dash to the toilet one morning and as she sat down on the toilet, she felt the sensation of her water breaking.

According to Grace, she asked her husband and her 13-year-old son to call an ambulance because there was “something coming”.

After calling an ambulance and returning to the toilet, Grace’s husband James realised that his wife had given birth to a baby.

When paramedics arrived, mother and child were taken to hospital where they were both given a perfect bill of health and sent home.

The birth took place on 5 December 2019 and the baby was named Sienna.
