You Won’t Believe What This Baby Was Born With

10 weeks ago, a baby was born at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in LA… but there was something different about him.

Silas Johnson was born looking like this.


He was still inside his amniotic sac.

Usually, breaks open during labour which is what is referred to as a mother’s water breaking. However, Silas was born via cesarean section – and his water sac was still intact which only happens once in every 80,000 cases.

In a situation like this, the baby still receives oxygen and nutrition via the placenta and umbilical cord.

The staff at the hospital told a local TV station, “It was a moment that really did, even though it’s a cliché: We caught out breath. It really felt like a moment of awe.”

Doctors quickly removed the baby from the sac so he could start breathing, “it felt like slow motion but really realistically probably about 10 seconds that we had to sort of quickly pause and be able to do this, because at the same time, we want to get the baby out of that sac, start helping the baby to begin breathing.”

Silas’ mother didn’t even know he was born inside his amniotic sac until her mother showed her the photo.

“It was definitely like a clear film where you could definitely make out his head and his hair… he was kind of in a fetal position and you could see, like, his arms and his legs curled up. It was actually really cool.”

Although Silas was born 3 months premature, he is doing just fine!
