play Episode

Have you ever read a tabloid story about a woman who is rushed to hospital with what she thinks is appendicitis and it turns out to be a baby and you're like - yeah right.

Or some women, like convicted murderer Kelly Lane who competed in a water polo match the day she went into labour and no-one suspected she was pregnant and you're wondering how could nobody notice?

Today we speak with two women who not only didn't realise they were expecting, one didn't know she was about to become a Mum until the day her son arrived.
