Baby shock for WPC busy fighting crime on the beat

Amie Bennett

DEDICATED copper Amie Bennett went on nicking crooks for nine months without realising she was PREGNANT.

She even got into a brawl with a suspect and was rolling around on the ground trying to restrain him just two weeks before baby Isabellas unexpected arrival by emergency caesarian.

The 999 beat officer, 26, also chased criminals in the street while pregnant, attended the scene of an alleged attempted murder, and drove a police van around with sirens wailing.

In the end the WPC went to hospital with back pain only to be rushed into the maternity unit for a caesarian. Isabella weighed in at 6lb 14oz and in good health.

Amie, who stayed slim and fit throughout, said: When I think of all the things that could have gone wrong it is quite frightening really. A few weeks before she was born I was fighting on the floor with a man.

I had no idea I was pregnant. I had none of the usual symptoms.

There was no bump, no morning sickness, no movement from the baby that I noticed.

I was not running quite as fast as normal but put it down to a knee injury last December which meant I was on crutches for six weeks.

She finally asked fiance Chris, 28, a computer engineer, to take her to hospital after she got severe back pain, which she attributed to a kidney ailment.

She was stunned when doctors told her she was pregnant and there was no time to lose because she had high blood pressure and the baby's heart rate had started to drop.

Three months on, Amie who lives in Wigan and has been with the Greater Manchester Force for five years said: It was unbelievable. One minute I was a working police officer and the next, a mum. It has changed our lives so much but we had always planned to have children at some point, just not quite this early.
