It is a very rare occurrence, so it was quite a shock to a new mother when she saw her doctors whispering about something. It was a huge relief when they revealed to her what it was that had them so excited—her baby had been born still inside of his amniotic sac.
With most births, a mother will feel her “water break”, which is a scene that has been portrayed countless times in films and TV shows. However, in this case, the mother’s water did not break.
When her baby made his way out of her womb and into the world, he appeared to be peacefully sleeping inside his amniotic sac. However, when the doctor carefully cut open the amniotic sac membrane, the baby let out a wail that revealed just how healthy and ready for the world he actually was.
This rare birth gave the baby’s doctors the chance to see what the protective membrane covering the baby looks like, offering them a rare opportunity to witness the birth of a baby who technically hadn’t been born yet. Also these doctors will undoubtedly deliver hundreds or even thousands more babies throughout their careers, this birth will be one that they will always remember.
