Ebony Stevenson, 18, is pictured with her baby Elodie Garner at the hospital after her mother explained that she had given birth while in a coma.
An English woman who was placed in a medical coma after complaining of a headache and later suffering from seizures was startled awake days later and discover they had given birth to a healthy baby girl. Ebony Stevenson, who at SWNS she had no prior symptoms or suspect that she was pregnant, was actually suffering from pre-eclampsia, a life-threatening pregnancy-related disorder.
Pre-eclampsia affects both the mother and the unborn child and occurs in approximately 5 to 8 percent of pregnancies. It is characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine, patients often experience sudden weight gain, headaches and changes in vision, while others may experience “silent” symptoms. According to the preeclampsia Foundation, the disorder usually occurs later in the pregnancy, delivering the baby is found to be the most effective form of treatment.

“Waking up from a coma to hear that I was pregnant and had given birth to a baby girl was overwhelming to say the least,” Stevenson, who was also diagnosed with uterus didelphys, which is a congenital abnormality that causes women to be born with two uteruses instead of one, told SWNS.
Stevenson, 18, was not aware of her condition, that will make it difficult to achieve pregnancy, and said that they have regular periods during the months leading up to her attack. But on the way to the hospital in the back of an ambulance, her mother and paramedics noticed a small bump and realized that she was pregnant, SWNS reported. Her mother claims paramedics theory that the epileptic activity moves the baby, making her swollen abdomen is noticeable for the first time.
Stevenson was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and uterus didelphys, female patients are born with two uteruses.
Stevenson gave birth to a baby Elodie at Royal Oldham Hospital via an emergency C-section on Dec. 3.

“When I woke up I remember the nurses telling me that I had a baby, and before I knew it, they had put her on my chest,” she told SWNS. “It sounds terrible, but I asked them to take her away I was so confused and she had made a mistake. But my mother explained it all to me while the nurses were there and they gave my little girl back to me to keep it well for the first time.”
Stevenson said she plans to return to the university in February, and that they “would not change what happened for the world.”
