Every birth is distinctive and noteworthy in its own way. What’s even more surprising is that a baby might appear to be in a bubble when it is born “en-caul,” which occurs when the amniotic sac is still intact following delivery. Vaginal delivery is so uncommon that many mothers have never even heard of it until their own experience. En caul deliveries, in which a child is delivered with the amniotic sac still in place, happen rarely approximately 1 in 80,000 times. Whilst still extremely uncommon generally, it is more frequent during cesarean births than during vaginal births.
Parts of the amniotic sac or caul that were removed by a doctor, doula, or midwife after birth remain cover the faces or bodies of the so-called “newborn babies” when they enter the world. This is also known as being “born with a shirt on” or “born with a veil on.” The newborn is shielded from uncomfortable contractions and the delivery is made more comfortable by keeping the baby on his or her tummy throughout labor and delivery. It is fascinating to watch a baby curled up inside the sac before being “born” out of it. Although most “en caul” babies are born prematurely, specialists now advise that babies who are likely to be born prematurely should be delivered “en caul” in order to offer them a more serene start to life. Ovular life and prolongation of the environment.

“The photo of the baby was born with “en-caul,” meaning the membrane that protects the baby’s body and head has not been torn. This membrane usually breaks when the birthing process begins, and this is known as “rupturing the water.”
It’s amazing, when the amniotic sac still covers the whole baby with everyone’s support.
The expressions on her face through the membrane, the discomfort is really cute
