Woman gives birth to surprise baby after ER visit for ‘kidney stones’

STOCKBRIDGE, GA (AP) – Abdominal pain sent Stephanie Jaegers to the hospital.

She told her husband, Michael, she believed it was due to kidney stones.

When they arrived at the hospital in Stockbridge, Georgia, on Tuesday, doctors asked if she might be pregnant. She said no, and doctors began preparing her for X-rays. But after some observations, doctors changed plans and began preparing her for an ultrasound.

He says there are no words to describe being told you’re having a baby – in 30 minutes.

At 3:50 a.m. Wednesday, Shaun Jude Jaegers was born. At 7 pounds, 3 ounces and 19 inches long, he appeared to be very healthy, even without prenatal care.
