Birth is such a taxing experience for everyone involved. Yet, in the end we have this beautiful little miracle of our own. It makes it all worth it. When we imagine birth, we usually imagine how traumatizing the process is on the mom. The pain, the pushing, the surgery if she has to go the c-section route. But through it all, it’s harder to imagine what the baby must be feeling. This video shows a baby who doesn’t know she was born yet.
When doctors performed the c-section, this baby was still in her amniotic sac. So rather than bursting the caul and removing her, the doctors decided to pull her out still in the ‘womb’, so to speak.
The results are incredibly powerful: an infant who doesn’t know her world has changed.
We can see the doctor stroking her, see the baby stretching. See how she’s completely calm in her tight little world. If there was one word that could describe the whole experience? It’s breathtaking. Take a look!
