A mother of four who did not know she was pregnant said she gave birth to a healthy baby girl in the toilet.
Grace Meachin said the birth of her last-born was during the period her husband was on the waiting list for a vasectomy.
She said she had no discernible bump, was taking her pill 'religiously' and still had periods, Daily Mail reports.
