From Parent Society, March 22:
A Greek doctor posted this incredible picture on his
Facebook page of a baby he delivered. And as you can see… it was no
The baby was delivered via c-section, but was still
inside the amniotic sac after being removed from the mother’s body. In
fact, according to Dr. Aris Tsigris, the OB/GYN in charge of this
delivery, the baby does not even know that it has been born yet.
Most sacs break on their own or are broken by the
doctor when a woman is ready to give birth. This is known as a woman’s
“water breaking.” It is extremely rare for a baby to be born with the sac
still completely intact.
However, although it is rare, it is not dangerous. Dr.
Tsigris informs us that the baby will not drown inside the bag because it
is feeding off the placenta. The baby will automatically start to breathe
on its own once the bag is broken. The doctor admits however that he was
left “breathless” by the site of this baby….
The… baby thinks it’s still in the womb and is
therefore living as peacefully as when it was in its mother’s uterus.
