A rare case of an intoxicated woman giving birth occurred in Košice’s Louis Pasteur University Hospital on April 5, the SITA newswire reported.
Hospital spokeswoman Jaroslava Oravcová said that the 32-year-old woman, pregnant with her first child, came to the hospital clearly under the influence of alcohol early on Tuesday. The staff took a blood sample for testing. Several hours before she gave birth, they found 2.4 pro-mille level of alcohol in her blood. Both the baby and the mother are said to be doing well.
