Woman Says Gust of Wind Made Her Pregnant | 22 Words

A woman has left the police a little puzzled after she insisted a "gust of wind" made her pregnant just hours before giving birth...

I know, just when you thought you'd heard it all.

Twenty-five-year-old Siti Zainah, from the town of Cianjur in the southern Indonesian province of West Java, has made international headlines with her wild claim.

Of course, people have found the whole story to be very amusing...


The young woman told local media that she was in her living room when she became pregnant from the gust of wind...

And, within an hour, had given birth to a baby girl.

She was quoted as saying:


"After afternoon prayer, I was lying face down and then suddenly I felt a gust of wind enter my vagina."

​Siti then said that, fifteen-minutes later, she began to experience intense pain in her stomach.


She then claims that her stomach began to rapidly grow - here, she went to the community center, where she gave birth an hour later.

The director of Cidaun's community clinic, Eman Sulaeman, said:


"I went to the location with the sub-precinct chief and district head. The mother and baby are in a healthy condition and the birth process was normal. The baby's gender is female and she weighs 2.9 kilograms."

A police spokesperson confirmed they went to the woman's house to find the facts, saying they wanted to stop the rumors from going any further.


​Officer Sumardi said:

"The point is that we want to straighten out the confusing news about the pregnant woman who gave birth in a way perceived to be unnatural. We don't want this matter to foster wild rumors among the public."

According to Eman, they believe Siti experienced a cryptic pregnancy, a term used to describe a pregnancy that is not recognised by the mother until she has gone into labour or given birth.


She has one previous child with her husband, whom she separated from 4 months ago.

What do you think?

Was this young woman really impregnated by a spiritual gust of wind? Or is it simply a lie gone wrong?
