It is understood the 34-year-old had not realized she was pregnant until she went to the toilet. She arrived at the hospital with the baby and its placenta in a plastic bucket.
The hospital’s team including, a doctor and paramedic resuscitated the baby girl later during an emergency helicopter flight to another hospital.
The baby’s condition is believed to be satisfactory, while the mother remains in Hospital.
The District Health Board today declined to answer any questions on the case, saying the mother had requested privacy.
Is it just me or would a towel/blanket not be your first choice to transport the baby in?
