Camp Bastion in Afghanistan has woken up for the first time, to the sounds of a new born baby's cries. After a female serving soldier who didn't even know she was pregnant, gave birth unexpectedly to a baby boy after complaining of stomach pains. The woman, a Royal Artillery gunner who has not been named by the MoD, had only been in Afghanistan since March. And it is believed the child was conceived before she arrived in the country. In response to the news of the birth The MoD released a statement which said "Mother and baby are both in a stable condition,". A specialist paediatric team from Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital will fly out to Afghanistan in the next few days, in order to provide appropriate care for mother and baby ,who was born five weeks early, on the flight home. There has been criticism in the past of women on active service overseas, and the number of service women sent home pregnant .But the MOD has said 'No women are deployed in the general infantry on the front line but they do perform an essential diverse range of support roles' they then added 'Less than 1% of British servicewoman ever deployed on operations have had to return home because they were pregnant.'Written and presented by Ann Salter.

    The soldier originated in Fiji. They have some pretty 'big-azzed' people in Fiji. Wasn't there a Fijian playing in the NFL - they had to haul him onto the field on a furniture cart?

    If you can keep your ears on her too, you'll hear her say her name at the end of the clip.

    Lets see, now the U.S.NAVY had a female Marine SSG, give birth on a surface ship, back in 2005, now this story. What's next, giving birth on a submarine??? I remember that issue, and still I'm waiting for that one to take place. In fact I'm placing bets on that one. It's only a matter of which country, that has women on their submarines, that will, get some woman sailor knocked-up. I say the U.S.A. will be first to host a female sailor to give birth on a submarine. And out of wedlock as well. And after that, what is next? Female pilot, while the Aircraft, is airborne, give birth too? And out of wedlock???? I tell you people this female forces is so entertaining. Very squimish, but entertaining.
