Stunning images show how a baby was born inside its intact amniotic sac.

The incredible moment was captured when little Nicolás came into the world in Muriae, a city in the southeast of Brazil on January 2.

Birth photographer Ludmila Gusman captured the fascinating images showing the baby sealed inside the sack.

Baby Nicholas had to be delivered via caesarean section, which led to the surprising and rare case.

Known as en caul birth, the phenomenon is known to occur in fewer than one in 80,000 births.

It occurs more commonly in caesarean sections and preterm natural deliveries than in natural deliveries after 37 weeks of pregnancy.

This is because the fluid-filled membrane usually ruptures when the mother-to-be is about to go into labor, a process commonly known as water rupture.

In the rare cases of an en caul birth, doctors must act quickly to break the sac and allow the baby to breathe, since the mother is no longer supplying oxygen.

Ludmila, who has 10,800 followers on Instagram, told local media that it was the first time in her nine-year photography career that she had seen such a rare event.

She said: ‘It all happened very suddenly. When I saw that the baby was still in the bag, I immediately set up the feeds.

Nicolás was born healthy weighing 3.38 kilograms and measuring 51 cm (20 inches).

In her incredible snaps, Ludmila said: ‘Cool, huh? I captured the moment. It was very fast, everything happened in a few seconds.

“I got in position and clicked at the right time, and the image ended up hitting.”

A similar case also occurred in Brazil in July last year when the twins Maria Cecilia and Maria Alice were born.

Doctors had to physically tear the sacks with their hands after mother Cristiane Mucci gave birth to her two daughters via C-section on June 11, 2022.

As the doctors delicately tried to open the sacs, the babies began to push their way out on their own.

The birth was filmed at the Hospital de Nossa Senhora das Dores in Ponte Nova, a state in southeastern Brazil.

Both children were born well and healthy.

What is an en caul birth?

An en caul birth is when a baby is born with the amniotic sac intact.

The amniotic sac is a fluid-filled, gelatinous container that helps protect the baby from bumps and scratches during pregnancy.

It normally bursts during labor, however, very rarely it can remain intact.

Estimates put the number of births in caul as one in 80,000.

It is more common in cesarean deliveries where babies are removed from the uterus by surgery than in vaginal delivery.

The phenomenon is also more common in premature babies, as they are smaller and as a result the sac is less likely to rupture during delivery.

After being born en caul, a doctor will carefully break the sac to release the baby.

Being born en caul is not believed to be dangerous for a baby.
