Astonishing Moment Twin Is Born Still Inside Amniotic Sac Occur Just Once In Every 80,000 Births.
Doctors said that usually when the baby is about to be born, the amniotic sac will ʙᴜʀsᴛ under the influence of uterine ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs during the mother’s labor or the doctor’s professional manipulations during the process. sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ.
It is rare for a baby to be born with the entire amniotic sac around it. This is a case of twins, but only one baby is still in the amniotic sac.
A baby girl, who is a twin, was born this week via ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ with the amniotic sac still intact, an event which is said to occur just once in every 80,000 births.
The one-in-80,000 event, called a veiled birth but also known as a ‘mermaid’ or ‘en caul’ birth, is when the baby comes out still inside the intact amniotic sac, which usually ʀᴜᴘᴛᴜʀᴇs when the expectant mother goes into labour. Doctors successfully delivered the twins at a hospital in the city of Vinaros, in the province of Castellon, in Spain’s eastern Valencia region, on Wednesday.
Gynaecologist and obstetrician Ana Teijelo, who was in charge of the medical team that carried out the C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, made sure the magical moment went smoothly.
Doctor Teijelo said: “Today at the hospital of Vinaros we had a veiled ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ (2nd twin) and here you can see the enthusiasm of the participants.”
The amniotic sac is a thin, fluid-filled sac that surrounds the foetus during pregnancy and helps to protect it from ɪɴᴊᴜʀʏ and to regulate temperature so it can stay warm. When the amniotic sac ʀᴜᴘᴛᴜʀᴇs, this is what is commonly known as your “waters ʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ”. En caul births are more common during C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴs, but they can also occur in vaginal births. And a slight majority of twin births are carried out via C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ. Amniotic fluid plays a vital role in the survival and development of the fetus, has the function of regenerating energy, providing nutrients for the fetus, avoiding excessive pressure by external influences, preserving protect the baby from bacterial invasion and many other important functions for the life of the unborn baby.
Not only providing nutrients, amniotic fluid forms a safe environment around the baby, keeping the baby safe even though the mother’s body may be subjected to external forces when ʙᴜᴍᴘᴇᴅ, sʟɪᴘᴘᴇᴅ, ᴏʀ Fᴇʟʟ. Amniotic fluid also helps maintain a stable temperature of the fetus in the uterus, creating an environment for the baby to freely “swim”, so that the baby’s muscles and bones can be strong and fully developed. better.
When a pregnant woman enters the stage of labor, amniotic fluid helps to clear the cervix well and help the fetus to be born easily thanks to the vaginal wall lubricant contained in the amniotic fluid.
Teijelo added: “Beautiful photos, don’t you think? The first veiled ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ I’ve seen and I loved it, and I’m not telling the students anything. It happens about once every 80,000 deliveries and today our students have had a 10-out-of-10 day. The twins when they were born were extremely well. All the staff enjoyed the delivery: midwives, gynaecologists, paediatricians, anaesthesiologists, nurses, nurse technicians, caretakers, students and, of course, the mother. And here are the protagonists, small and large.”
“And to leave a memory of this moment, our staff have made a painting for the mother by printing the placentas and it looks beautiful, really. Being good professionals is not at odds with being empathetic.”
Twins inside amniotic sac seen as a sign of good luck. Children born like this are said to have many advantages in later life.
