Looking on Google maps Street View, Stenlake Terrace looks like a typical late Victorian/Edwardian terrace of bay fronted houses. Maybe she went home to mum or a female relative to have the baby?
If you go to google maps, put in 14 Stenlake Terrace and click on the red A on the map a little photo will pop up. Click on that and it will take you into the street and you can move up and down it using the arrows and see for yourself.

Subject: [DEV] Curly times in Plymouth
I have some queries which I hope some person or persons can help clarify for
My father, Reginald Rule, was born 16 Jan 1906 in Plymouth. On his birth
certificate there are two addresses, he was born at 14 Stenlake Terrace U.D.
to my grandmother Eliza Rule who is recorded as a Domestic Servant, home
address 10 Braidwood Terrace and entry for the father is conspicuous by its
absence! The registration district is Plymouth/Charles.
I am aware of the more likely reason for the missing father detail but what
resources might I be able to look at to delve a bit deeper into this
As gran was a " domestic servant" has anyone any knowledge whether the
address registered for the birth was a hospital or nursing home or something
similar and am I right in assuming the other address would be the residence
where she was in service, if so, would there be any means of finding out who
this family was and would her period of employment be registered anywhere.
Also what would be the most likely church in the area where he may have
been baptised and is that parish register and/or parish chest available for
Hopefully someone will be able to enlighten me further, to you many thanks
for your time and effort,
