The birth of a baby marks the beginning of a wonderful relationship between a parent and child.
It is a moment full of joy and we’re lucky if we are able to capture that moment into a photo!
What makes these photos special, though, is because these babies are born along with the amniotic sac. En caul births are considered to be rare as it only happens to 1 in 80,000 births.
Baby Anabelle was born via c-section weighing 8lbs and 5oz with her head wrapped with amniotic sac…
Baby Anabelle’s mum posted the photo on her instagram account with the caption: “Annabelle Burow was born February 21st at 8:05am via c-section. Sometimes we get to caught up in the excitement and forget to take a step back and realize the miracle of birth itself. We are completely in awe and I can tell you nothing- no moment can top hearing my babies cry for the first time, no moment can top the first time they were placed in my arms. Babies are such a blessing, such a gift and forever a miracle.”
This baby boy’s En caul birth is considered a photographer’s bucket list!
“It was one of the most beautiful things to see! As a birth photographer, speaking for myself it was on my bucket list to see an en caul birth. Statistics show that en caul births occur fewer than 1 in every 80,000 births,” All Things Baby Photography wrote on their blog post.
The midwives were pleased to witness such a spectacular sight…
