Woman who gave birth in the shower didn’t know she was pregnant

A woman got the shock of her life when she gave birth alone in the shower – without knowing she was pregnant.

Dimitty Bonnet, 28, who was already a mother of two, had given up hope of having another child and was stunned when she felt a sudden urge to push in the shower – and wedged the baby’s head between her legs.

Dimitty and husband Jason, 42, a sign writer – the parents of Nate, five, and Darci, three – thought their family was complete and had stopped having more children.

Dimitty, from Campbelltown, New South Wales, Australia, had had her period regularly and even had a negative pregnancy test a few weeks before giving birth at 1:30am on February 26, 2022.

Her husband was in bed at the time and when she called for help he rushed to the bathroom to find his wife covered in blood with a baby in her arms.

She had no idea anything was wrong until she felt “a little uncomfortable” the night before the birth.

“My weight has fluctuated my entire life, so I didn’t think much of it when I gained a few pounds,” said admin manager Dimitty.

“I assumed it was just a bit of lockdown weight and it wasn’t overly noticeable.”

“I flew on an airplane a month earlier and even had an X-ray six weeks before giving birth following a rugby injury.

“No part of me thought I could expect – to be sure, I even took a test a month before giving birth and it was negative.

She notes that the night before her son was born, her stomach was “a bit upset,” so she put the kids to bed and went to bed early.

“I woke up around 1 a.m. and felt so uncomfortable,” she recalled. “It was like I really needed to go to the bathroom, but I couldn’t go.

“The pain was getting worse so I decided to take a shower to get better.

“I didn’t want to wake my husband, so I left the lights out and showered in the dark.

“I suddenly felt the urge to push, and the next thing I knew I was holding a baby’s head.”

In a state of shock and confusion, Dimitty managed to sit on the floor in the dark and after a final push, her baby was born in the early hours of February 26, 2022.

She called out to her husband Jason, who stormed into the bathroom and was shocked to find his wife rocking their newborn son.

The panicked couple called an ambulance, which arrived about 15 minutes later – just in time to help Dimitty deliver the placenta.

After cutting the umbilical cord and making sure the mother and baby were okay, paramedics took the family to Campbelltown Hospital in New South Wales, where the couple was monitored 24 hours a day.

Dimitty and Jason named their surprise boy Harvey Eric Barry Timmins. He weighed 6lbs 8oz.

While Dimitty was in the hospital, they met up with Nate and Darci and told them “Mom has a surprise” before showing them their new sibling.

“It was such a big shock that the first few days are a bit blurry,” Dimitty explained.

“My older kids were so excited when we told them, especially my daughter as she always wanted to be a big sister. She is so caring and has really embraced her new role.

“Our family and friends were all so supportive that we weren’t prepared at all – in fact we had thrown away all our old baby stuff a month earlier.

“But everyone got together to make sure we had a stroller, clothes, nappies and a bed for him.

“It took us about 24 hours to come up with a name for him, but we chose Harvey after Jason’s grandfather, which is really special.

“He’s such an amazing baby and we’re so lucky to have him in the family, even though it was quite a shock at first.”
