A woman has claimed she got pregnant by a gust of wind, reports in Indonesia say.
Police are investigating after Siti Zainah, 25, said she gave birth just an hour after realising she was expecting.
Her healthy baby girl was born last week in the town of Cianjur in West Java.
Siti told local media that she was in her living room when a gust of wind blew across her house, Times Now reports.
She reportedly said: “After afternoon prayer, I was lying face down, and then suddenly I felt a gust of wind enter my vagina.”
Just 15 minutes later, she said she began to experience pain in her stomach which started to expand.
Siti claimed she was rushed to a community health clinic, where she gave birth to her child.
The news of her bizarre pregnancy spread quickly around the town and has gone viral on social media.
Eman Sulaeman, director of Cidaun’s community clinic, said: “I went to the location with the sub-precinct chief and district head. The mother and baby are in a healthy condition and the birth process was normal. The baby’s gender is female and she weighs 2.9 kilograms.”
Eman added that it is likely Siti experienced a cryptic pregnancy – where the woman is unaware about her pregnancy until she goes into labour.
Following the birth, cops visited Siti’s house to start their investigation.
A police spokeswoman said: “The point is that we want to straighten out the confusing news about the pregnant woman who gave birth in a way perceived to be unnatural.
“We don’t want this matter to foster wild rumours among the public.”
Last year, a British mum-of-four told of her shock to give birth to her baby girl in the loo after four negative pregnancy tests.
Grace Meachim, then 32, from West Sussex, was unaware that she was 37 weeks pregnant as she had no visible baby bump.
She said she had taken her contraceptive pill “religiously” and still had periods.
Grace and James Meachim, 34, were adamant they would only have three children – then their fourth, Sienna Meachim, arrived as a total surprise.
Grace had woken in the early hours of 5 December, 2019, as she was feeling a bit rundown.
Planning to take a painkiller and have a cup of tea, she suddenly felt like the desperately need to go to the toilet.
But as she sat down, she felt her waters break and let out a scream.
Her husband and their eldest son Tyler, 13, came running to help as they thought Grace was ‘being attacked’.
She told them to call an ambulance immediately as there was ‘something coming’.
Moments after getting through to a 999 operator, James had to run to the loo and catch his baby daughter as Grace quickly gave birth.
When paramedics arrived, they took Grace and 7lbs 5.5oz newborn Sienna to hospital, where they were both given a perfect bill of health and sent home.
