A trainee flight attendant claims she was passed as 'fit to fly' just weeks before giving birth to a surprise full-term baby in the toilet - that she thought was just a number two. Lucy Jones said she started having back and stomach ache one evening but just shrugged it off as period pain as hers was due at the end of the week.

But while in bed the next morning, the 22-year-old's stomach 'flipped' and after dashing to the toilet she heard a 'crash' - only to look down and discover 'two feet sticking out' of the bowl. The shock of it left her shouting 'there's a baby!'.

The 'terrified' first-time-mum claims she had no idea she was expecting given she had no symptoms throughout her pregnancy, took contraception daily and still had periods. Remarkably, the cabin crew member trainee says she had a medical examination when she would have been eight months pregnant - and two pregnancy tests came back as negative.

Can you heal from birth trauma? How to spot it and what you can do about it

  Can you heal from birth trauma? How to spot it and what you can do about it Many women across the U.K suffer from birth trauma. Often it can go undiagnosed for months or even years. Here are ways to spot it and what you can do should it occur . So what exactly is birth trauma? Dr Mareike Suesse, a psychologist and birth trauma expert, explains that ‘trauma’ is normally recognised as an experience that hasn’t been processed properly in the brain, due to extreme emotions like fear, helplessness or horror at the time. ‘The thoughts, emotions, sensations and urges of that experience become “stuck” and can get triggered by anything related.

The full-time mum said she worked 70-hour weeks, drank often and went clubbing around 15 times throughout her pregnancy - including just three days before she gave birth. Despite her now four-month-old daughter Ruby 'magically arriving' with no notice, Lucy said she's taken to motherhood like a 'duck to water' and wouldn't change anything for the world.

Photos captured by the mum-of-one show her out clubbing with a drink in hand blissfully unaware she was expecting - as she dons tight-fitting shift dresses with no sign of a bump. After a whirlwind experience, the devoted mum is keen to raise awareness that cryptic pregnancies, which is when a woman is unaware that she is pregnant, can and do happen.

Lucy, of Bristol, said: "I had no bump, no sickness and had a period every month. I had two negative pregnancy tests, because of my new cabin crew job I had to take them for that.

Lawyer who lost baby at 22 weeks is campaigning for paid miscarriage leave

  Lawyer who lost baby at 22 weeks is campaigning for paid miscarriage leave If someone suffers a pregnancy loss before 24 weeks, employers don't have to provide any paid leave.Keeley Lenghton lost her baby boy, who she had named George, at 22 and a half weeks in March 2022. Under current UK law, she had no legal right to take any time off work.

"I would have been eight months pregnant when I went for my medical and did the pregnancy tests. He [the doctor] pressed all down my stomach and body, and he suspected nothing.

"I was still taking the pill. I took it every day and had been on it for six or seven years. I went up one dress size after Christmas and then I went back down again, and I put that down to eating and drinking a lot."

Lucy claims she received her fit to fly certificate the month before she gave birth. She said she'd often work long hours as a pub manager and had her last shift just ten days before having Ruby.

Lucy said: "I did a weeks training [for cabin crew] came home for two days and that's when she magically arrived.

"I had tummy and back ache the night before but I was due my period at the end of the week so just put it down to that. I woke up in the morning, had a bath and just thought I'd sleep it off before I went back to Bristol for work.

"I was in bed for about 45 minutes and it felt like my stomach flipped, it's the only way I can describe it, and I just felt like I needed a poo. I ran to the toilet and gave birth to my daughter in the toilet at home by myself.

"I heard a crash and looked down and there was two feet sticking out of the toilet. I didn't have any pain. No one could believe that. I had my back ache and tummy ache but there wasn't actually any pain when I was physically, what I thought was pushing out a poo."

Lucy said she wrapped her daughter in a towel before placing her in the kitchen sink. She was home alone at the time, called her dad and her parents arrived back around ten minutes later.

They also rang for an ambulance while they were on their way. Lucy said: "I had no idea I was pregnant until I saw the baby in the toilet.

"I was hysterically screaming saying 'there's a baby' and they were expecting there to be a miscarriage, not a full-sized seven-pound baby in their kitchen sink. I was terrified. I didn't know what had hit me. It was just the shock. I felt numb in a way.

  GMB’s Ranvir Singh stuns co-hosts as she admits she doesn’t flush toilet after having a wee GMB viewers were also convinced that a Yorkshire guest looked extremely like Gogglebox star Scarlett MoffattPresenting duo Ed Balls and Charlotte Hawkins were joined by environmental activist Angela Jones and Siobhan Murphy, who appeared on BBC2's Interior Design Masters last year, as they discussed whether we should stop flushing wees in an attempt to save water. Just before introducing their guest the pair panned over to the Lorraine studio to ask Ranvir, who is stepping in for Lorraine Kelly, what viewers can expect on the show.

"When my parents walked through the door it all went a bit blurry because I think the shock just took over and I can't really remember anything then until about 1pm when I was in the hospital.

"Dad described the kitchen - it just looked like a murder scene because when I'd ran from the toilet to the kitchen to get my phone the cord had snapped and there was just blood leaking out. It was up the walls, the door, fridge and freezer."

Shortly after the paramedics arrived, Lucy was dashed to hospital in an ambulance. Lucy said: "Properly holding her for the first time felt weird. I'd held babies, but never my own.

"Probably on day four or five it became reality. My dad rang around the family and when he told everyone there was just like silence on the phone, noone could believe it.

"Even now as a family, we still can't get our heads around what happened. There's still moments where we're like 'wow'. It's one of the stories that you read about, but you never think it would be you, your friend or someone you know."

The aspiring cabin crew member enjoyed weekly personal training sessions throughout her pregnancy but stopped once she'd started her training and last went to the gym around two to three weeks before giving birth.

Lucy said: "I was still doing everything - going out drinking, partying, to festivals and the horse racing. In my personal training sessions I'd be doing squats, sit ups, press ups on the rowing machine and the bike and lifting weights.

"I used to go out drinking twice to three times a month. I went clubbing probably ten to 15 times when I was pregnant. I went clubbing in Bristol the Saturday before I gave birth.

"If I had a drink I'd sometimes socially smoke, but not every time I was drinking. I roughly had four cigarettes a month if that."

Lucy described her little girl as 'happy, content and chilled'. Lucy said: "I think I've done alright, I've adapted pretty well [to motherhood] and had to adapt pretty quickly obviously.

"Everyone's just said that I've taken to it like a duck to water. You don't believe it and you sort of shame upon other people thinking 'how did they not know that they were pregnant?'

"Whereas now I've actually lived through it, I kind of regret thinking that as I know what other people have been through now.

"It is a real thing, it does happen. I've gone on the injection now, so hopefully I won't have any more surprises. Like my dad said, if I have any more he'd like at least nine months notice."
