Against all odds, a determined woman going into her 30's and without any womb eventually became a mother. She is besotted with her beautiful and phenomenal newborn.


At only 16, a currently 29-year-old Niomi Allan from North Lanarkshire, Scotland, was told she would never be able to have a baby. Yet now, the new mother cradles her baby girl Eliana Katie.

As she was still just a teenager, Allan was not too affected by the news that she could not give birth due to being diagnosed with Mayer Rokitansky Küster Hauser (MRKH). This is a syndrome that means a woman does not have a uterus or cervix.

However, once she met the love of her life, Sam, in 2015, the fact that she was unable to give him a baby sent her into shock as the realization finally hit her. The now-mother-of-1 expressed:

"The reality of MRKH really hit. I’d found the man I loved, but surrogacy was the only way to have our own biological child."

The couple who are now married began searching for a surrogate. Although the process was not easy, they finally found Katie Lochrie, with whom they immediately got along.


On the day of the birth, Sam and Allan were in the delivery room. The mother revealed the awe she experienced when seeing the selfless surrogate deliver her newborn:

"To watch her being born was the most miraculous thing I’d ever seen. It was like an out-of-body experience."

Eliana's mother recounted holding her baby in her arms for the first time as an indescribable feeling. The little girl made her way into this world on July 27, 2021.



Mothers with unexpected kids or babies they thought they would never have are a wondrous sight to behold. 25-year-old Lorna Goodings herself was utterly shocked when she gave birth out of the blue.

Before this incident, she had no idea she was pregnant, putting her weight gain down to bloating. Suddenly, while Goodings was enjoying herself at a party with friends, she had to be taken to the hospital for severe pain.


On arrival, and to her absolute surprise, medical professionals told her she was in labor. Previously, doctors had said to the now-mother-of-two that her contraceptive implant was causing the bloating.

Goodings even took a pregnancy test this past July, which produced negative results. The baby was the mother and her husband Nick Burdiak's second child, coming after her older sister Vivienne born in June 2020.

They named their newborn Daphne Burdiak, who came into the world on August 1, 2020. It looks like both the pregnancy test and Allan's doctors were wrong, where both mother's bundles of joy were on their way all this time.
