A woman has told how she only learned she was pregnant when she gave birth to twins in her bathroom after getting up to go to the toilet in the middle of the night.

Beth Bamford, 21, from Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, claims she had no idea she was pregnant because she was still having her periods, and had attributed her weight gain to simply ‘fat’.

Beth, who is already mother to three-year-old Elsa-Mae and two-year-old Alivia, gave birth to 5lb 10oz daughter Willow as boyfriend Andy Morris, 22, lay sound asleep just along the landing.

Terrified, she called for an ambulance and emergency services to take her through pushing out the afterbirth, but before they arrived Willow’s twin Freya arrived, weighing 5lb 1oz.

Beth was horrified to see Freya, who was breech – meaning she arrived feet rather than head first – wasn’t breathing, but medics were able to coach her through a ‘little shake’ procedure over the phone, and the smaller twin took her first breath.

Beth had visited her doctor numerous times thinking she was ill but neither the mum nor her doctors realised it was because she was pregnant.

She claims she showed no signs of pregnancy because she was still having her periods, was not eating any more than usual and put the small amount of weight gain down to ‘fat’.

However Beth says the new babies are a great surprise addition to her family.

Beth said: ‘It’s a big shock but a nice surprise. I didn’t know I was pregnant at all.

‘I was in bed with my partner and I was getting pains. I didn’t say anything to him but I went downstairs to get a glass of water and they got worse and I thought I needed the toilet.

‘I was still sitting on the toilet when I gave birth. I didn’t really have time to feel anything as it was happening.

‘It was a rush. One moment I was getting pain and the next moment I have got two new babies.

‘I hadn’t phoned an ambulance but I called the emergency services and they talked me through it as I gave birth to the first one.

‘They told me I needed to get the placenta out. I pushed again but another baby came out, not the placenta. It was a shock.

‘The second one wasn’t breathing because she was breech. I was panicking about what to do because I wasn’t sure what to do with one, let alone two.

‘Nobody was answering me when I was shouting and I couldn’t wake my partner up because I was on the floor with the babies and couldn’t move.

‘Andy eventually woke up and walked into the bathroom and just looked at me. He went to his mum’s bedroom and said: ‘Beth’s got two babies in the bathroom’. She thought he had lost the plot because she knew we had two children already.’
