Life In A Bubble

We assume that the process of being born would be a little disorienting. You emerge from a peaceful, dark, quiet, wet environment into a bright noisy world where you're the wettest thing around. posterior-baby1 It's as messy as it sounds. The baby doesn't pop out neat and clean. natural1 Then there are the leftover parts, like the Ikea crib you assembled. natural_placenta It's no wonder birth can be so difficult. You're trying to get the kid and all that resulting effluent through a relatively small passage. natural_emerge Normally the fetus develops in the amniotic sac, which is made of two membranes and filled with a clear fluid. The fluid helps to cushion the fetus from injury, keeps it at a constant temperature, and is something they can breathe and swallow. The amniotic sac starts to form and fill just a few days after conception. amnio_40 Typically the amniotic sac breaks on its own during birth, which is commonly referred to as a mother's "water breaking". amniob1 But in extremely rare cases, the amniotic sac remains intact as in this example delivered by obstetrician Dr. Aris Tsigris via caesarean section in Amarousion, north of Athens. The baby, unaware that anything had changed, behaved as if it were still in the womb. The baby could continue to feed off the placenta and would not start to breathe until the sac broke. baby_water Maybe he was just avoiding the real world as long as possible. puppy_amsac Every kid should have a puppy to grow up with. This one looks like a perfect match!
