Newborn Delivered INSIDE Amniotic Sac!

A doctor has recorded the moment he delivered a baby inside an intact amniotic sac.

Obstetrician Dr Aris Tsigris published the photo of the newborn on his Facebook page after delivering the baby via caesarean section in Amarousion, north of Athens.

Because the sac had not been punctured, Dr Tsigris said the baby did not even realise it had been born and behaved as if it was still inside the mother's womb.

The picture is amazing!  Wow!

That is amazing! I didn't get to see it, but my son was born very quickly, with the bag intact. It burst immediately though...

That is absolutely amazing. How is it possible to stay intact through all the squeezing and pushing? That is awesome the doctor got pictures.
