See an Astonishing Picture of a Baby Born Inside The Amniotic Sac [GRAPHIC PHOTO]
Apparently in medieval times this was considered an omen. It was said that the child was destined for greatness and if we are to believe wikipedia, Napoleon Bonaparte was born this way.
Greek doctor Dr Aris Tsigris posted this picture on his Facebook page after delivering the baby via caesarean section in Athens. Dr Tsigris said that because the baby was still encased in the amniotic sac it would not have even realized it had been born yet.
According to The Mirror:
During the early stages of labor, the amniotic sac breaks, which is commonly referred to as a mother’s “water breaking”. Dr Tsigris said he was left “breathless” by the “ultra rare” moment and added that there was no risk to the baby as it was still getting food from the placenta. As soon as the sac was broken the baby started breathing on its own.
