Heni Nuraeni, (30) from Mandalasari Village in Indonesia gave birth just one hour after she experienced pregnancy symptoms.
The 30-year-old now trends in Indonesian media after her claims that the birth of her baby boy happened one hour after she discovered she was pregnant.
She said her stomach started growing on July 18 and experienced
experienced painful cramps which she associated with childbirth because she has had two children before.
According to her: “I was at home, and nothing was out of the ordinary. Suddenly, I felt something moving on the right side of my abdomen and the cramps started. I asked a neighbor to take me to my father’s house and about an hour later we called a midwife and I gave birth.”
Apart from being unaware of the pregnancy, she also claimed she has not also made love with her husband Erik in 19 months.
The couple had abstained from sex after the birth of their second child, for medical reasons. This was confirmed by Zalkap Drasman, the head of Puspahiang Sub-District.
Zalkap said the incident strange but true and they are grateful because with God’s will anything can happen.
Nuraeni admits she gained some weight in the months leading up to childbirth but did not experience pregnancy symptoms like her first two pregnancies.
She insists that she had her period every month for the last nine months, which doctors attribute to a hormonal imbalance.
It is this small detail – the lack of intercourse – that makes the doctors reluctant to provide the simplest explanation.
They call it a case of cryptic pregnancy, where the mother doesn’t know that she is pregnant.
