Rare Birth Caught On Tape As Baby Is Still Inside Amniotic Sac


Typically, the first clue that you're going into labor is when your water breaks. But for one lucky mother, that never happened. 

Instead, her child was born still inside the amniotic sac, an occurrence that only happens once in every 80,000 births. The video, which was uploaded to Facebook by Jasmine Perez, shows a baby born while still inside the membranous pouch known as the amniotic sac. This particular kind of birth is called an "en caul birth," and despite being very rare it is completely harmless and safe for the child.

With one simple cut, a doctor or midwife can free the baby from the sac, a beautiful moment that in this case was caught on video.
