‘Terrified’ UK teen gives birth on hospital toilet without realising she is pregnant

A teenager had no idea she was pregnant when she went for a check-up for back pain – and gave birth in a hospital toilet.

Dion Seaborne, 18, went to Accident and Emergency after believing she had hurt her back while working at a restaurant.

Unsuspecting Dion had been seen by a doctor – but was waiting for more tests.

She popped to the loo – where she gave birth to “perfectly healthy” daughter Lilly-May at the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport, South Wales.

Sore back

“My back had been sore for about three days and I thought I had hurt it in work, so I went to the hospital to find out what was wrong,” Dion said.

“Because of COVID-19 restrictions, I was there by myself.

“I’d been seen, had my blood pressure and temperature taken and was waiting to be seen again.

”It was about 3am and I needed to go to the toilet. I was pushing and pushing and the next thing Lilly-May was born.

”I had to shout for a nurse to come and help me because I couldn’t reach the emergency button and at this point Lilly-May was in the toilet.
