A woman who went to hospital believing she had appendicitis later gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Kimberley Robinson, 22, went to Hull Royal Infirmary when she began having severe stomach pains.

Robinson, from Hull, thought she had appendicitis and had no idea she was pregnant.

She later gave birth to Mackenzie, who weighed a healthy 7lb 14oz.

"I thought I had appendicitis. I had no idea I was pregnant until my waters broke and I could feel his head. He arrived about five minutes later," she told the Hull Daily Mail.

Mackenzie, now five weeks old, is said to be doing well.

She added: "I was in total shock. It took about two weeks for it to sink in. Because I had no idea I was pregnant, I didn't have any clothes for him or things such as prams and car seats."
