A 22-year-old woman who was told by doctors she was infertile gave birth to a healthy baby in her bathroom after a night out with her friends.
Carla Macpherson believed she would never have children but she was shocked when she developed excruciating pain she thought might be appendicitis.
Only a few hours later, she gave birth to little Oscar.
Carla, who has endometriosis, had regular periods and did not notice any weight gain leading up to her son’s miracle birth.
Hours before she went into labor, she had a night out with her friends and drank eight vodka shots.
“Since I was 15, I believed I couldn’t have kids. Luckily, my boyfriend, Jaiden had never wanted kids anyway,” Carla said.
“So, like most 20-year-olds, we spent our weekends partying. I never expected I would go on a night out and end up with a baby. I am just so thankful he was born healthy.”
It was in May 2019 when Carla and her boyfriend Jaiden Mathias went clubbing with their friends.
“I slipped into a black bodysuit and skinny jeans. That night, my friend bought us all vodka shots, then I drank eight vodkas and orange,” she recalled.
“We danced the night away and had the time of our lives.”
But after arriving at Jaiden’s parents’ house, Carla suffered severe stomach pains.
“My face started burning up and within minutes my entire body was soaked in sweat. I thought it was just the alcohol, so Jaiden fetched me painkillers and I tried to sleep it off.”
“I lay in bed for an hour in agony,” she continued.
“The pain was so bad, I thought it must have been appendicitis. Jaiden suggested I try going to the toilet. I was about to tell him it was more serious than that when I felt an overwhelming urge.
“I sat down on the toilet and began to push. I was terrified, I had no idea what was happening.”
But when she looked down, her blood was covering the toilet bowl.
“I started to feel something heavy between my thighs,” she said. “And then a head appeared. I screamed for Jaiden, who then went to fetch his mum.
“I braced myself against the wall and continued to push. Seconds later, Jaiden burst through the door and quickly held out his hands to catch the baby.”
Carla gave birth to a healthy baby boy, who weighed 8lbs 5oz.
Jaiden’s mother appeared and called emergency services right away.
“We were both in a complete state of shock. The doctor had told me that the baby was lying with his back against my back which is why I had no bump,” she continued.
“I couldn’t get my head around the fact I was supposed to be infertile, taking the contraceptive injection and was getting periods, yet I managed to get pregnant.
“The doctor told me it was extremely rare but can happen.”
