Deze foto’s van baby’s die geboren worden in de vruchtzak zijn even bijzonder als intens

Daphne de Groot 19 dec 2017 Zwanger

Het gebeurt niet vaak: slechts 1 op de 80.000 baby’s wordt geboren in de vruchtzak. Een zeldzame ervaring, zeker omdat je daarmee een glimp opvangt van hoe je baby in de baarmoeder zat. Toch kunnen we ons ook voorstellen dat het een beetje schrikken is, als je baby er ineens ‘met zak’ uit komt! 

Op de redactie zijn de meningen een beetje verdeeld. De een vindt deze foto’s prachtig, de ander krijgt er een beetje een weeïg gevoel van. Wat denk jij?

1. Dit maakt deze badbevalling extra bijzonder

En caul. A unique and breathtaking occurrence. You can see the baby's sac billowing around her face. #birth #birthwithoutfear #birthphotography #birthphotographer #midwife #encaul #coloradoborn

2. Alsof deze bevalling nog niet bijzonder genoeg was! Met 29 weken bevallen in een auto…

'I am Superwoman': Mom gives birth to baby en caul on way to hospital. Raelin Scurry: Our birth story! ❤ The human body is truly an amazing thing. 8.5.2017 at about 10am I started having contractions. I was only 29 weeks and 4 days so I just figured they were Braxton hicks and decided to wait it out. After about 45 minutes of consistent contractions that were increasing in intensity I decided I should probably go in. I there in some clothes. Grabbed my daughter some clothes, her my fiance And I left for the hospital. I dropped my daughter to her God mommy Nicole And headed to the hospital. Well the contractions continued to get closer together and more intense and before I knew it I knew it was time to push. I called 911 because I was so scared. They couldn't understand me between the screams with contractions. So I handed the phone to my fiance. I pulled my pants off and reached down, sure enough his head was right there. I pushed one time and my miracle baby was here. When I looked down I realized he was still completely wrapped in the amniotic sac. The dispatcher told us to pull over. But I knew we would make it to the hospital before they would make it to us. So I told Ean to keep driving. I was so scared. My Fiance was so calm driving and on the phone with 911. At first the baby was still and all I could do was pray he would be okay. And then I rubbed his face with my thumb and he pulled his little hands and feet up to his face as if he understood my prayers and wanted to reassure us he was okay. About 7 minutes passed that I held this miracle baby in my hands until we made it to the hospital. A familiar face came running out and grabbed my baby. He was born an caul. This happens 1 in every 80,000 births. Usually during c-section. He was 3lb 1oz. He doing wonderful all things considered all He went through I know he's going to be an awesome little man! ❤ he is truly a miracle​ baby. We are so blessed to be his parents. #encaul #encaulbirth #carbirth #miriclebaby

3. Deze is wel erg mooi

How amazing is this baby en-caul!! Did you know your waters don't always have to 'break'? If left alone, the amniotic sac and membranes will release whenever it is ready, or not at all. For me, that was just before I was in transition. It was the most amazing feeling of instant relief as the amniotic fluid splashed ALL over the floor – just like in the movies. How did your waters break?

5. Hoe maak je zo’n vruchtzak stuk, vragen we ons af

Just had another birth announcement, bringing this week's total to 5!! This time news that the baby was born "en caul" which means the amniotic sac was still intact at birth. Really rare, some sources claim as few as 1 in 80,000 births and lots of cultures regard this phenomenon as extremely good luck. Congratulations to all the families getting to know their new babies this week ??

7. Bijzonder, die blauwe kleur

Look at how comfortable this little en caul baby is, snuggled up to the placenta. Isn't it stunning?? The contrast of that curly hair on a sleepy head, the little pink and white skin and a pulsing blue cord. And I can't EVEN with those toes! ?Spectacular. Reposted from @medicaltalks who says, "Breathtaking photo of a baby delivered via c-section but was still inside an intact amniotic sac!" #encaul #amnioticsac #merbaby #cesarean
