Birth video: Baby born inside amniotic sac [GRAPHIC]


Doctors performing a Caesarean section to deliver a baby three months early were amazed when the little boy arrived inside his intact amniotic sac, according to the Daily Mail.

The bag of clear pale fluid inside the womb is where the foetus develops- and, when labour starts, it ruptures- causing the “waters” to break, only, in this case, it didn’t.

It is extremely rare for a baby to be born inside an intact amniotic sac, only one in 80 000 births happen this way.

Life in a bag

Little Silas Philips was delivered by Dr William Binder at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in California- the astonished doctor quickly snapped pictures of the phenomenon on his cell phone before finishing the birth process. A baby being born in this way is still able get oxygen via the placenta, but Dr Binder didn’t want to hang around- within ten seconds he began the process of removing baby Silas to ensure that the child was safe.

Silas was born at 26 weeks, but doctors report he’s doing well.

Celebrity mom Jessica Alba has spoken fondly of her daughter Haven’s delivery in 2011- also an example of this rare kind of birth.

Take a look at the astounding pictures caught by Dr Binder:
