Indonesian police are investigating the strange case of a 25-year-old woman who claims that she gave birth just an hour after a gust of wind got her pregnant.
The young woman, identified as Siti Zainah, ahs become the subject of widespread ridicule in Indonesia after claiming to have been impregnated by a gust of wind, on February 10. Furthermore, Zainah added that she gave birth to a baby girl just an hour after the alleged impregnation. According to several Indonesian news outlets, the 25-year-old was relaxing at home in Cianjur, West Java, with her first child, when she felt the wind enter her body. A few minutes later, she went into labor.
âAfter Zuhr prayer, I was lying face down on my stomach, then suddenly I felt wind enter through my vagina,âÂ Siti allegedly said. âA moment later, my stomach ballooned, then it shrank back to normal. Then it grew again.â
âI was shocked,â Siti Zainah said. âI was shocked that my stomach could immediately get pregnantÂ andÂ that I was giving birth to a baby.â
Sitiâs explanation stunned everyone and word of her âmiraculousâ pregnancy spread like wildfire, so when she came home, there was a crowd waiting to see her and her baby daughter. Police also visited the woman and asked her questions about the pregnancy, after her gust of wind explanation made national news headlines in Indonesia.
Eman Sulaeman, Head of Cidaun Health Center, said that Sitiâs explanation of her pregnancy was impossible, from a medical perspective. However, she didnât accuse the young woman of lying. Instead, he said that this was likely a case of âcryptic pregnancyâ, in which the mother didnât realize that she was pregnant and only found out when it was time to give birth.
Interestingly, this isnât the first such case in Indonesia. In fact, just last year, a 30-year-old woman named Heni Huraeni made news headlines in her country for claiming that sheÂ gave birth just one hour after experiencing pregnancy symptoms.
