A Delaware woman thought she couldn’t have children ended up giving birth to a baby in the bathroom without showing any symptoms before delivering.
Carla Collazo, 37, suffers from a condition that would likely prevent her from ever getting pregnant. She had taken pregnancy tests a few times but the tests came back negative. She also didn’t gain any weight.
Collazo thought nothing of her swollen ankles because she works for hours on her feet.
So when her stomach and back hurt something fierce on Sunday morning, Aug. 25, she thought she was sick and went to the bathroom, she wasn’t expecting to give birth. But that’s what happened. She began to scream and her sister-in-law Santos ran in to help.
She added, “She’s freaking out. I’m telling her that we have a baby. We have to save her.”
Collazo was shocked. Santos quickly pulled the baby out, grabbed a shoestring following paramedics’ direction over the phone.
“I tied it on the umbilical cord as tight as I could,” Collazo’s sister-in-law said.
“She was just so precious. She was looking at me and I was looking in her eyes,” she recalled.
The miracle baby girl, named Amoura Rose, was taken to Christiana Hospital. She weighed a little more than two pounds.
Amoura is thriving in the hospital. She is expected to head home soon.
