Carvalho said one reason doctors believed she was pregnant was because "she had the symptoms associated with pregnancy like an enlarged abdomen and nausea."

The spokeswoman said that after doctors could not hear the baby's heartbeat they felt its life was in danger and thus ordered an emergency cesarean after which they discovered it was a false pregnancy.

Carvalho added the woman was so convinced she was pregnant, that she altered her prenatal tests that showed otherwise because she was convinced the results were wrong.
