While many people do not know what to do while in quarantine amid the coronavirus outbreak, a woman has been commended for giving birth on her couch while in quarantine.

She shared the news on social media minutes after giving birth to a baby girl while on day five in quarantine.

@BrittyPinon shared her special moment by tweeting a photo of herself and the baby moments after just giving birth on the couch.

The new mommy from Motta Sant'Anastasia in Italy, according to her Twitter handle, captioned the post:

"Day #5 in quarantine: had a baby on my couch."

Social media users had mixed reactions about the new momma's quarantine experience.

While some congratulated her, some told her that she should name her new bundle of joy Quarantina.
