Woman So Sleepy, She Gave Birth During Her Sleep Like a Boss

Giving birth is no easy task, not when you try to do it in your sleep. This 23-year-old woman actually gave birth under a pretty unusual circumstance that got us wondering how did she do that. 

Dozing off during labour

A 23-year-old woman from England woke up to the fact that she had nearly pushed her baby out. It all started out when Alice was medically induced and decided shortly afterwards that a nap would be perfect. After being given a hormone injection to bring on labour, she was linked up to a machine which was tracking her contractions. The machine monitoring her contractions actually misread the intensity of it. 

The doctors had no idea how far along she actually was. Hence, she was given some drugs to nap for a couple of hours. However, 30 minutes later, they’ve realised that she was ready to push. Doctors were worried that she may have to undergo an emergency caesarian as she was ‘too relaxed’ to push.

She woke up a short while later and her son, Philip, was just making his way into the world. She also says that she was “completely out of it”, which could explain how she managed to doze off.


It gets even more bizarre as John, Alice’s wife, started telling his wife to push and even though she was asleep, she did.

She said, “I remember a nurse trying to put Philip in my arms, but I was going to sleep again, only to wake up two hours later to properly meet my son…Though I’m pleased I missed the pain of labour, I do wish I had been more present for my first baby’s birth…Now when he’s older and asks me, I’ll have to tell him I nodded off.”

This is really giving birth like a boss, indeed.
