Incredible moment baby born INSIDE amniotic sac in rare case

Birth photographer Jana Brasil captured Monyck Valasco’s C-section delivery as little Noah was pulled from her body surrounded by amniotic fluid.

The baby completely surrounded by the amniotic fluid which had protected it during the pregnancy.

Noah’s whole body is engulfed by the sac but he still wiggles and attempts to cry as he is pulled from his mother’s body.

The sac usually splits just before birth and is more commonly known as a woman’s waters breaking.

His 34-year-old mother told reporters at the Praia da Costa Hospital in the city of Vila Velha: “People all around the world are reposting the photos and looking for us.

“I saw him being born. They lowered the screen so I could see.

I cried a lot. It’s an emotion that has no size.”


The baby was caught in these stunning birth images


Ms Brasil, who dedicated herself to photographing births as a full-time job three years ago, said: “It’s indescribable to register that moment.

“Last year I took photos of babies in the sacs, I have two awards.

“But nothing like the photo of Noah, it surprised me.

“I thought I had been through all the emotions, but he pulled a face and did a little pout.”


Gynaecologist Rafael Angelo Baggieri said: “An en-caul birth occurs when the baby is born without breaking the amniotic sac, in other words, within a little house which shelters it during gestation.

Mr Baggieri says the special births occur in every 80,000 to 100,000 births and do not put the baby or mother at risk.

Noah is reportedly still in hospital as Mr Baggieri said the newborn was “tired” after the birth but the tot is expected to be allowed to go home by the end of the week.

 Back in August 2016, a baby was filmed when it was born while still inside the amniotic sac.

It is not known where the baby was born or how much he weighed.

In the footage the newborn can be seen trying to stretch out as if it was still inside its mother.
