Every mom thinks their newborn baby is the most special in the world, but this baby’s welcome to the world actually was just a tad more special than most. That’s because when he was born, he wasn’t totally born — instead, after being removed from mom’s belly via C-section, he remained in his amniotic sac.
This is an extraordinarily rare occurrence, also known as the baby being born en caul. Normally, even with a C-section, the sac will burst when disrupted — but every once in awhile, it stays put. This incredible video gives us some insight into what’s really going on inside mom’s womb — and this baby’s adorable curled up position seems to say, “Hold on guys, let me just stay in bed a few minutes longer.”
