In 2019, Lynn shared her traumatic story about a car accident that landed her in the hospital. However, her injuries were not the most shocking part of her experience. Lynn, who was 18 when the incident took place, woke up as a mother.

It was completely unexpected because she delivered a baby but had no knowledge that she was pregnant. The young woman was unconscious when medical staff rushed to save her life. They soon realized they were not only going to be saving one life.

PERFORMED AN EMERGENCY C-SECTION

Before the baby developed pre-eclampsia, doctors decided on an urgent c-section. They were able to welcome the 32-week-old baby into the world while the mother wasn't awake. When nurses gave Lynn her baby for the first time, she was confused.

The teen was confident they had made a mistake and even told the hospital staff they had the wrong room. Lynn's story was shared on an episode of TLC's "I Didn't Know I was Pregnant." She told viewers that she woke up feeling terrified.

THE NEW MOM WAS SCARED

After she woke up, the nurses checked to see if she remembered her name. They then told her to rest assured because her daughter was alive and healthy. She tried to speak, but she couldn't get any words out at first.

The new mom expressed: "I woke up with a tube down my throat, bandages all over my stomach, and I was like 'where am I?' I was scared." Once the tube was removed, she quickly tried to make sense of the situation.

SHE FELL IN LOVE

She was afraid to hold her baby, which she had only been made aware of minutes before. The young mom said: "If I were to hold her, I probably would have shaken to death. All of a sudden, I was a mom." Lynn panicked, thinking about the situation.

She wondered how she would raise a child when she couldn't even look after herself yet. Initially, Lynn contemplated adoption, but after spending an hour with her little girl, she was in love with the "little baby doll."

THE ONLINE REACTION

Lynn expressed that her baby was "just gorgeous," and at that moment, she decided to keep her no matter what it would require. Her story garnered over 3.6 million views on YouTube, and the online community had a lot to say.

One user wrote: "This sounds like a nightmare." Another netizen added that it was on the "horror movie level."

People also shared similar instances and explained that it is possible to be pregnant without knowing. While many were shocked by the story, they were glad both mom and child survived the ordeal.
