Phoenix police are gathering DNA samples from the facility's male staffers as part of the investigation.

'Someone just had a baby - one of the patients just had a baby, and we had no idea she was pregnant, ' the nurse said.

"We have no idea, this is a complete surprise", the nurse responded, without explaining that the woman is in a vegetative state.

'Mom's doing well - it looks like she's doing well, ' the nurse said.

Normally, a woman is going into labor at a hospital, or a different health-care facility, she has her own room that's full of nurses that can manage any kind of situation. The baby is not breathing, the baby is blue.

Women in a vegetative state after accidents or strokes have successfully delivered babies, Huls said.

More than four minutes into the call, the nurse announces that they had signs of life from the baby, who is heard crying.

The 29-year-old woman, who is fed through tubes may not have had a swollen belly, a doctor of fetal medicine told Associated Press.

The announcement comes ahead of Mnangagwa's tour of Eastern Europe and Switzerland to strengthen bilateral and economic ties. Residents in Bulawayo said police fired teargas "indiscriminately" along city centre streets and into some residential areas.

The mother could actually lose weight in other places like her face or arms if a fetus is consuming nutrients, Huls added.

The woman's mother, who is her legal guardian, is required under state law to submit an annual report that includes results of a physical, according to Maricopa County Superior Court documents. The facility, which has called the situation "deeply disturbing", said it welcomed the development. "Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her". Hacienda's chief executive, Bill Timmons, resigned last week. "There may be changes to her body that are going to go undetected in a chronic care condition or at a facility like this".

Court documents revealed that the woman received a medical exam almost nine months before giving birth, during which the doctor who examined her found "no change" in her health, according to the form, noting the exam was external only. Phoenix police said they launched a sex crime investigation after learning the mother was in a vegetative state.

"This matter is now under investigation by the Phoenix Police Department", Sergeant Tommy Thompson told Reuters when asked about the media reports.

It also remains unclear if anyone had noticed if the woman had stopped menstruating.

Hacienda HealthCare describes itself as Arizona's leading provider of specialized health care services for medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

A lawyer for the patient's family said that her baby will "be well cared for", but expressed that the family is shocked and outraged by the events.
