You may have seen footage of a child born inside his or her amniotic sac before, but such an incredible sight will never cease to take our breath away. New video of an en caul childbirth during a cesarean delivery is making waves across the Internet, and it truly is something you need to see to believe.


The Birth Without Fear Facebook page posted this extraordinary clip of a child entering this world from the comforts of the amniotic sac. At one point in the video, you see LO move his or her hand before making a grand debut from within the caul.

To say it's mind-blowing would be an understatement.

Wow, oh wow, oh wow. What an incredible video!

En caul births are pretty rare, which makes them all the more amazing.

No matter how many en caul births I see (it comes with the CafeMom territory), each and every one is so unique. I constantly find myself amazed at the female body and our ability to bring forth life. To see a child born within the amniotic sac we helped make is incredible and definitely bring things full circle.
I can't even imagine how mothers feel seeing something like this in person!
It's okay to admit you've watched this more than once.
I know I have.
