A 43-year-old Madrid woman has given birth to her fourth child while in the toilets of the Law Faculty of the UNED University in Madrid, where she works.

She said she did not even know she was pregnant.

She had thought she had started the menopause.

Two of her work colleagues helped her and called SAMUR health professionals to the scene on Monday at 11am.

The baby girl weighed 1.96 kilos, and mother and baby are now both doing well in the Gregario Marañón Hospital.

-- Pregnancy books on the market have one of two audiences - the teen with an unplanned pregnancy or the adult with a planned and chosen one.

Nowhere is there a book for the almost 3 million adult women facing surprise pregnancy every year.

Surprise Motherhood is aimed directly at that gap, telling the stories of Ophelia and other women who have faced unplanned pregnancy as an adult, professional woman.

With extensive information about options, paternity, career issues, postpartum depression, finances, and more, Surprise Motherhood is the only reference of its kind, and is sure to be an invaluable reader resource.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
