A mum has had what must surely be one of the fastest births ever, with her new baby arriving just 27 seconds after she was told to push.
Baby Millie arrived in a flash when Sophie Bugg, 29, was 38 weeks pregnant. Sophie had popped to the loo in the middle of the night completely unaware that her third child would be born very shortly. Less than a minute after she had entered the bathroom, her partner Chris, 32, saw her emerging with the baby’s head already between her legs. With just one big push, Mille arrived into the arms of her shocked father. Despite her swift and surprising arrival, Mille is doing well and with her family at their home Basingstoke, Hampshire. Full-time mum Sophie said: ‘She was ridiculously fast! One moment I’m texting my friend on the toilet about needing a poo and seconds later, I’ve got a baby in my arms.
‘Actually pushing her out from when the lady on the phone told me to push only lasted 27 seconds, it was so fast.
‘I had no pains and my waters hadn’t broken, there was no realisation I was having her at all. It sounds really crude but it just felt like I needed to go for a poo.
‘I had messaged my friend saying I don’t feel great, then put the phone down from where I was sat on the loo and went to get up from the toilet.
‘As I went to lift myself up, my body just got that feeling like I needed to push for a poo. So I sat back down, pushed, and as soon as I did that push, I knew it was not from behind. ‘I put my hand between my legs and her head was completely out. I shouted to my partner for help, went from the toilet to outside my toilet door on the top of the stairs, did one push and she was out.’ (Metro)
