 Infertile Woman Gives Birth After Being Rushed to Hospital for Ulcer Treatment

Lisa Witchalls had been told by doctors that she would never have a baby. But imagine her surprise when she was rushed to hospital with a suspected ulcer, but came home with a baby boy!

The 27-year-old Lisa has one ovary and was told by doctors that she would be unable to conceive. The day she suffered from severe stomach pain, she asked her boyfriend to call an ambulance and rushed to the hospital thinking she had an ulcer.


However she then gave birth to a baby boy via a C-section.

"To go to hospital thinking it was an ulcer and come out with a baby is crazy. I was in shock and I couldn't believe he was mine. It has taken me some time to get my head around that I'm a mum. If a doctor tells you that you cannot have kids you do not question it," Lisa told The Sun.

Doctors decided she needed to give birth right away as there was an issue with the baby's heartbeat, "First of all I was just happy I was pregnant but then I was told I actually had to give birth straight away. I went through so many emotions," Lisa added.
