Woman Who Didn't Know She Was Pregnant Gives Birth Outside Asda

A woman who didn't know she was pregnant gave birth outside Asda.

Delyth Jones, 25, from Wales, had no idea she was expecting, and welcomed her baby boy Harry, outside the supermarket where her partner, Dean Stawman works.

Delyth was with her mum, Andrea and sister, Kate at home when she first started to experience labour pains.

Although an ambulance was called, paramedics were unable to get to the hospital in time, and pulled up in the car park of the Asda store.

"I've had a pain like that before and had been rushed in before, so assumed it was something similar," said Delyth.

"I phoned my mum and sister thinking it could be back so they came over to help me. When they got there the pain changed and the next thing I knew I was on the floor. Then half an hour later he was born."

Delyth's sister Kate said: "We rushed over to help because she wasn't feeling well and we thought it was appendicitis.

"At one point she said, 'I think I'm having a baby', and we laughed. So it was quite a shock when it turned out she was right!

"She really had no idea she was pregnant. She wasn't showing and didn't feel the baby move."

Delyth didn't even have time for any pain relief before little Harry was born, weighing in at 7lbs 7oz. Mum and baby were taken to Bangor Hospital for checks, but were home within 24 hours.

She continued: "We were going through Pwllheli in the ambulance when they said we were going to have to stop.

"The community midwife was around and jumped in the ambulance at Asda and 10 minutes later he was delivered.

"I said to them, 'Tell me I haven't just given birth in Asda' and they said I had - and that it would be listed as his place of birth on his birth certificate.

"It must be fate that he was born at Asda with our connections there."

Delyth and Dean, who've been a couple for seven years, have been telling shocked friends and family their wonderful news.

"It's been such a whirlwind, but it's been so good and I have absolutely loved it. I wouldn't change any of it," Delyth added.

"Dean knew I'd had a couple of pains the night before and knew I wasn't well, but we decided he should go to work as usual.

"He arrived home just as I was giving birth in Asda. My mum knew he was coming back, so waited for him and told him what was going on.

"As soon as he found out he was ecstatic. We knew we were going to have children one day, but hadn't planned for this.

"The reactions have been amazing, and I love watching the shock on people's faces when I tell them. It's not a story you hear every day, is it?

"We've got a really supportive family, and that makes a huge difference. We had nothing in, so they've been rushing around for us.

"We're still trying to get some of the things we'll need, but we've got all the essentials now."

Incredibly, Delyth was working until two days before Harry was born, when she had a couple of days off.

Kate, who also works in Asda, says everyone at the store is delighted for Delyth and Dean.

She said: "We're all slightly shocked, but very happy. A couple of people said they'd seen the ambulance in the car park, but everyone was oblivious to what was going on inside.

"Everyone's overjoyed, and I'm ecstatic. I think Delyth and Dean are still in shock and a bit of a state of disbelief - especially Dean!

"It's wonderful news though. It's all been a bit doom and gloom recently with everything that's going on in the world, so it's given us all something to smile about."

This is such happy news, congratulations to Delyth and Dean!
