OMG! This has got to be the most beautiful thing in this world. I will admit, at first I was hesitant to watch the video because I get grossed out pretty easily. The baby was born on Saturday, August 6, 2016 in Barretos, Brazil. The baby was born in the amniotic sac and is actually a twin, with the twin being born just moments before naturally. Neither sex of the twins has been revealed as of yet.
Breathtaking Birth Story Caught on Film
One of the attending nurses, Gih Flor de Lis, was allowed to film the amazing moment and she immediately posted the video on her Facebook page. As of this writing, the video has had 441,697 views. Her Facebook page shows she is employed as a nurse at the Santa Casa de Misericordia de Barretos, assumingly where the twins were also born.
On her Facebook post, the excited and happy nurse wrote, “Look what I had the honour of filming in my dear Santa House Mercy. We were waiting to stabilize the first baby and the second came quietly, in fact, look how beautiful!!! Historic moment! !!!”
Being born in the amniotic fluid, also known as en-caul, is very rare. In fact, it only occurs in 1 out of every 80,000 births. Normally during childbirth, the amniotic sac will break on its own, also known as a mother’s water breaking. If the birth occurs during caesarean, the doctor will use a scalpel to gently pierce the amniotic sac.
In the video, you can clearly see the baby through the clear amniotic sac. The baby does not seem to be in any distress at all and you can even see the baby move a couple of times. The baby is receiving oxygen through the umbilical cord, which is still attached.
Back in February of this year, another baby was also born inside the amniotic sac. In this video, you can see the baby not only moving around inside the clear amniotic sac, but you can even see the baby yawning at one point. Also in the video, the doctor is seen using surgical scissors to make a small hole in the amniotic sac and within a second, the baby slips out of the sac and takes his first breath. It is truly one of the most touching moments I have ever seen on video.
