WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Hoggard High School student gave birth today on campus in one of the school’s bathroom stalls. The baby was born around 3:30 p.m. right as school was letting out.

New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman Valita Quattlebaum says that the school nurse and staff acted heroically in getting medical attention to the student and newborn.

No word on whether the baby was a boy or girl.

    Have any of you ever seen the show “I didn’t know I was pregnant” ?it happens to women everyday. Some women go an entire nine months without a buldge in their bellies or any symptoms,so it is very possible that a teen who doesn’t speak good english didn’t know she was pregnant. And who says the govt is going to take care of her baby?? Maybe she has rich parents who just don’t pay attention to her enough to know she’s pregnant. Everything is about money to you ppl. This is a human teenager who could be any one of your children.

    Such judgmental people on both sides of the aisle. Morality dictates that a girl shouldn’t get pregnant before marriage. Morality also dictates that a girl shouldn’t murder her unborn baby. But morality also dictates that we love everyone and take care of each other. People make mistakes and being judgmental serves no purpose and certainly doesn’t add anything to the situation.

    More people should be like my dad. One of my aunts was considering an abortion because she couldn’t afford another baby (she had two from her previous marriage). My father told her that if she had the baby that he would see to it that the baby had everything she needed. And my dad did just that.
