Every now and then we get a glimpse at something so extraordinary that it blows our tiny minds…this video of a recent en-caul birth is one of them.
An en-caul birth, where a baby is born while still inside the amniotic sac, is extremely rare and occurs in under one in 80,000 births. In a traditional birth, the sac either breaks on its own or is broken by an obstetrician prior to the baby’s entry into the world. This means we never get the chance to see how our babe looks while inside that tight little womb-spa it’s called home for nine months.
Watch the moment this perfect little human wriggles around inside the amniotic sac, blissfully unaware that he has been born, and the mind-blowing moment where he slips out and takes his first breath.
Life seriously is incredible…
Have you ever seen an en-caul birth?
