Heni Nuraeni claims the greatness of God miraculously formed her baby boy in a single hour before he then arrived in the world.
The 28-year-old from the city of Tasikmalaya in West Java told local media:
“At first when I was at home there wasn’t anything strange.
“And then I felt something move in the right side of my belly, and I was taken to my father’s house. I had cramps and within an hour we called a midwife and I gave birth.”
She claims she knew the baby had not been there previously because she had been menstruating regularly in the past nine months, and had even been bleeding shortly before she gave birth.
After her claims were widely spread on social media, obstetrician at Bandung’s Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Dr Ruswana Anwar, said women were sometimes unaware that they were pregnant in around one in 25,000 cases.
The doctor added that this was known as a cryptic pregnancy.
