Rebecca Oldham of New Zealand was told by her doctors that she needed to have an oophorectomy (removal of the ovaries). She had been having very painful cramps and they felt that the ovaries were the cause. The 25 year old went to Middlemore Hospital in November for the surgery. Unfortunately this would mean that she would never be able to carry a child again. She had one child already who was 20 months old. When the doctors opened her up on the table however they found a big surprise.

When Oldham awoke from the anesthesia she found out that it wasn’t defective ovaries that she had. Instead she woke to find out that she was a new mother. The doctors had found an almost full-term, 9 pound baby when they opened her up. They woke Oldham up before they performed the emergency c-section needed to get the baby out safely. Oldham said that she was glad that she was woken up and told that there was a baby on the way instead of waking up after the surgery to be handed a baby.
