Every single entry of a new little person into this world is pretty amazing, but some births really do take it up a notch.
One new arrival has almost broken the Internet this week, as hundreds of thousands of people have tuned into social media to watch the VERY rare birth of an ‘en caul’ baby.
This incredible footage shows a very special new arrival who has joined us in the world while still safely cocooned in his amniotic sac. Given that this rare phenomenon happens in just 1 in 80,000 births, it’s not surprising that the world is going crazy over it.
The video, which was shared on a Portuguese website entitled Céu de Borboletas (‘Butterfly Heaven’) shows little bub safe and sound in the amniotic sac surrounded by a very excited array of medical staff.
It’s not surprising that the video has gone viral, with over 8 million people watching it in just one day!
Charming footage indeed (providing you’re not squeamish).
