2012: BRITISH SOLDIER GIVES BIRTH ON FRONT LINE; AT MILITARY BASE IN AFGHANISTAN

20 Sep

A British soldier gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday, while serving in Afghanistan.  It is said to be the first delivery in a combat zone field hospital for Britain’s military.

The most surprising part of the story is that the new mom reportedly did not know she was pregnant.  How can you not know your stomach is larger than usual and something is moving inside?  Well, according to Charles Heyman, a retired soldier; “The excitement of the tour masked the symptoms of the pregnancy”.  Seriously?

It’s a good thing the baby and mother are fine….and no, pregnant women are not allowed to serve in the military.  But I am sure many women wish they could go through nine months without feeling anything and just pop out a healthy baby!
