Rare Baby Is Born Inside A Fully Intact Amniotic Sac
This baby had a 1 in 80,000 shot of being born like this.
Giving birth is arguably one of the most frightening and exciting moments of a woman's life. She has gone through 9 months of pregnancy all leading up to the moment when she can first see her baby.
Traditionally, a baby growing inside its mother's stomach grows inside a protective membrane known as the amniotic sac. Usually, when the baby is about to be born, the sac will burst, which is what causes what we traditionally know as a woman's "water breaking". On rare occasions, however, the sac will not break, and the baby will be born in a very surprising way.
The following footage, taken at a hospital in Spain, shows a baby that was born through an "en caul" birth, where the amniotic sac remains fully intact. These births are very rare, it's estimated to occur in 1 in 80,000 births, potentially even less.
Curled up in a ball on the hospital table, this little baby makes subtle motions from inside the sac. The blue umbilical cord inside the sac is also visible. Doctors and nurses are gathered around the baby, and even they are in awe of the miracle that is occurring right in front of them.
The video below is considered graphic and might be disturbing to some viewers, but if you can stomach it, you are about to witness something incredible.
