A second Portuguese baby in two weeks has been born in a lavatory - this time to a mother who did not even know that she was pregnant. The woman had arrived at her local hospital, accompanied by her sister, with what she believed was a haemorrhage. She went to the bathroom, and because she took so long to come out, her sister went to investigate.

Reports tabloid Correio da Manhã, by this time “the baby was already on the floor”.

Doctors called into the bathroom attended the woman and her infant who were then transported to the nearest maternity unit.

Only last week a young mother in Peso de Rêgua had a baby in a lavatory at her son’s school.

The 24-year-old was fully aware she was pregnant, but not that her daughter’s birth was so imminent.
