Newborn Delivered INSIDE Amniotic Sac!
Thu, 06-06-2013 - 12:30pm

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!

Wow!! And I actually like how Jessica Alba named her child "Haven" after a similar thing happened with her baby too. I usually don't like "weird" names but the sentiment behind the amniotic safe being a safe haven is really cool.

LOL! Next time I'm reluctant to post something because of controversy surrounding it, I'll consult instead of waiting to see how things pan out. Birth is birth, and this is a truly unique experience. As someone whose water broke with a distinct POP, I am AMAZED the sac stayed intact.
