I came across this article which I must definitely share with you guys!!! For your convenience, I have copied the excerpts from the article here - click on the image below to launch the video on YouTube:

THIS is the amazing moment a baby boy born still inside the amniotic sac is cut out so he can take his first breath. The tiny infant remains blissfully unaware he is no longer in the womb and can even be seen squirming and yawning from within before doctors snip him out.

 It is easy to make out the baby's dark hair and features as his face is pressed up against the wall of the sac. In the remarkable clip, medics delicately slice open the thin casing which quickly gives way to release the baby.

He slides out easily and immediately starts crying as he breathes in air for the very first time.

 The amniotic sac is a thin but resilient membrane which encases the baby in fluid to keep it safe during pregnancy. The moment the casing splits is often referred to as a woman's 'waters breaking'. The expectant mum will usually give birth shortly afterwards.

Babies being born still encased within the entire amniotic sac, known as an en-caul birth, are rare. It generally occurs in fewer than one in 80,000 cases.
