A 47-year-old menopausal woman in Massachusetts, United States of America was given a pleasant surprise when she went to a hospital with complaints of stomach pain, was told she was pregnant and gave birth one-hour after.
Judy Brown, who had been married for 22 years without a child, noticed severe pains in her stomach which she thought signified she was going into menopause but told her husband to take her to hospital.
The stomach cramps turned out to be labour pains, and she was delivered of an eight pounds, two ounces baby girl the couple named Carolyn Rose.
“I was feeling severe abdominal pain. It was getting worse,” she said.
“[The doctor] said, ‘it’s good news. There’s no blockage. You’re pregnant and you are going to have her now!’”
The couple said Carolyn Rose will be an only child.
