This astounds us!
A 32-year-old Kentucky woman, who had no idea that she was pregnant, delivered her own baby on March 4th, and then headed out to pick her other child up at school!
The woman, Kelly Bottom, noticed discomfort in her abdomen and thought she needed to use the bathroom. The pain suddenly grew stronger and stronger and she realized she was in labor. After pushing on the floor of her own bathroom she delivered a baby boy, cutting the umbilical cord herself.
Rather than calling for help, Kelly remembered she had to pick up her 7-year-old child from school. She said: “I knew there was nobody else who could go pick (my son) up, so I cleaned myself up the best I could and went to the school.”
After picking up her son, Kelly drove them all over to her mother-in-laws home, where her mother-in-law was shocked to hear that the new baby was her grandson.
It wasn’t until later that evening that Kelly and her husband drove to the emergency room.
The baby boys name is Brian Keith Sims and he weighed 6 lbs. 15 oz. Luckily both mommy and baby are doing fine.
