12-Year-Old Gives Birth on School Field Trip

baby feetLast week in the Netherlands, a 12-year-old girl was on a school field trip, when all of a sudden, she went into labor. According to the Telegraph, she didn't appear pregnant at all and neither she nor her parents knew she was.

After teachers realized what was happening, she was rushed to a nearby building where she gave birth to a baby girl. Now I bet that's something her parents never expected her to bring home from school!

Both mother and baby are said to be "doing well." Though other reports indicate her father may be suspected of impregnating her (he previously served prison time for abusing an older daughter). If that's the case, then nobody in this mess is going to be doing well without a lot of therapy and help.

Can you imagine getting a call from your daughter's school that she just delivered a baby?
