Mom Has No Idea She's Pregnant until She Gives Birth to Twins in the Bathroom

A young mother with two kids aged three and two was unaware that she would be adding a set of non-identical twins to the family until her shocking delivery in the bathroom.


Twenty-one-year-old Beth Bamford from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, already shared two kids, Elsa-Mae and Alivia, with her boyfriend, Andy Morris, 22. So, when she began to gain weight despite not eating uncontrollably, the mother of two did not feel threatened.

On February 21, 2018, Bamford battled with an unsettled tummy and thought she needed to use the toilet. That was when the most unbelievable incident of her life occurred.

Seconds after sitting down, Bamford delivered two healthy babies. Unknown to her, she had been 37 weeks pregnant.

It was nearly impossible for the new mom to comprehend. Neither her boyfriend nor the medics that attended to her believed Bamford carried twins without knowing.



Bamford was no stranger to pregnancies, especially since she had two young ones. But somehow, her third pregnancy experience was nothing like she had ever witnessed.

The 21-year-old had quietly left her sleeping boyfriend in bed to use the toilet but ended up requiring medical attention.

After Bamford sat on the toilet, she delivered a 5 lbs baby named Willow. In utter shock, the new mom alerted the emergency services, who tried to help her through the process of pushing out the placenta.


While on the phone, she followed the advice but ended up with a second baby, Freya, who was delivered in a breech position (she came out with her feet instead of head first).

Although the second child weighed less, Freya did not breathe upon landing. Thankfully, with the help of the emergency services, the newborn regained consciousness, and Bamford successfully pushed out the afterbirth.



Bamford had noticed the weight gain but shoved it aside, thinking it was merely "fat." At some point, she felt discomfort, but during her numerous visits to the hospital, the doctors confirmed that she was sound.

She claimed that the doctors did not diagnose her as pregnant; instead, they concluded that she had a viral infection. Bamford added that her periods were regular so being pregnant was not an option she considered.

Following the safe deliveries of the twin girls, Morris found it difficult to believe that his girlfriend was unaware of the pregnancy.


He woke up to two babies and thought she had intentionally kept the pregnancy news from him. Also, when the paramedics attended to the new mom, they were not convinced that she was oblivious to her pregnancy. According to her:

"They assumed I knew that information and had notes, but I didn't. I told them I didn't know I was pregnant or having twins, but nobody believed me – even my partner thought I had hidden it from him.



Bamford confessed the truth; she did not have notes of her pregnancy, diapers, or clothes. The 21-year-old was not prepared for the shock but felt lucky after all. She said:

"I feel lucky because it could have been a lot worse. I have settled down a bit now, but it is scary going from two to four."

Bamford's luck also stemmed from her babies' sound health. If she had made it to the hospital, she would have undergone C-section to deliver the babies.

Thankfully, her babies are alive and well. The mother and the twins stayed in the hospital for a few days under observation before returning home.

Bamford confessed that juggling four young babies was tasking, but she soon found a way to handle it, especially with the overwhelming support from family.
