A mother-of-five who unexpectedly fell pregnant with her sixth child while she was on the IUD (contraceptive coil) has revealed how her little girl was born with the device under her armpit. 

Evelynn Crouse, 26, from Titusville, Florida, already shared Alyssia, 12, Andrew, 11, Mason and Madeline, both six, and Lillie Ann, three, with husband Justin, 31.

Despite having the contraceptive device fitted after having her fifth child in 2016, Evelynn started to have stomach cramps and after realizing she hadn’t had a period in over two months decided to take a pregnancy test – which came up positive. 

Evelynn was shocked to have fallen pregnant again, calling the child her ‘miracle baby’, and after her waters broke when she was just 23 weeks pregnant due to the coil pricking her amniotic sac, little Ava was born weighing just 1lb 13oz – and with the device stuck under her armpit.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: ‘I never expected to fall pregnant with my IUD fitted. She really is my little miracle.

‘When they pulled her out, the IUD was tucked under her armpit. I remember them holding it up and showing me.

‘Fortunately it didn’t do her any harm, but she was so thin and fragile, it could have very easily cut her.’

During her pregnancy Evelynn was worried that coil would harm her unborn baby, after doctors were unable to remove it from her swollen cervix in case it caused her to miscarry.

And when her waters broke just 23 weeks into the pregnancy, the anxious mother was rushed to a specialist clinic where she was kept on bed rest for a week as doctors tried to stop her early labour. 

But just a week later, in June, Ava was born naturally, weighing a fifth of the average newborn’s weight and 13 inches long, and quickly rushed to the neonatal intensive care unit.

What is a contraceptive coil?

There are two types of contraceptive coil, an IUD and an IUS.

An IUD is a small, T-shaped plastic and copper device that’s put into your uterus.

It releases copper to stop you getting pregnant and protects against pregnancy for between 5 and 10 years.

An IUS is a hormonal coil that is also placed into your uterus.

It releases progestogen to stop you getting pregnant, and protects you from pregnancy for between 3 to 5 years.

There are two brands of hormonal coil used in the UK, Mirena and Jaydess.

Just days after being born, Ava had to undergo heart surgery to repair the missing skin between her arteries, which were causing her lungs to fill with blood.

Despite progressing well, Ava remains in hospital where she is on oxygen and being tube fed, with Evelynn admitting that she can’t ‘wait to bring her home’.

Speaking on her Just Giving page, Evelynn said: ‘Ava is doing pretty good. Her surgery went really well. 

‘The only complication is that she has developed a heart murmur from the surgery but they dont expect it to last, and even if it does many people live just fine with one.

‘This is the last machine she will be on before being off the oxygen completely and she will be on it for a couple of weeks’.
