Two Out Of Three Babies Born En Caul During Triplet Birth!

Two Out Of Three Babies Born En Caul During Triplet Birth!

“Awesome! Yesterday we birthed the triplets! And Joaquim was born veiled (when the waters/sac does not break). We were delighted. But then came Adeline… she was also born en caul, and left us all admiring her as she slept soundly. We stayed (that way) for 7 minutes observing her behavior as if it were still inside her belly. It’s the magic of life. The perfection of God!!” —@dr.rodrigorosa

Incrível! Ontem fizemos o parto dos trigêmeos! E o Joaquim nasceu empelicado (quando a bolsa não rompe). Ficamos encantados. Mas aí veio a Adeline ( as mulheres sempre superam os homens) e arrasou! Também nasceu empelicada e deixou todos nós a admirando enquanto dormia tranquilamente. Ficamos por 7 minutos observando o comportamento dela como se estivesse dentro da barriga ainda. É a magia da vida. A perfeição de Deus!

Sortudos por presenciarem:

“I spent the night in the company of a remarkably intuitive woman. Alongside her equally amazing partner, I was privileged to witness a birth unlike any I have seen before. It was by far, the most connected, the most primal, the most sexy, the most vibrant, the most intense, the most wild and the most fulfilled birth one could ever hope for. Dancing, moaning, furiously moving, screaming, ecstasy – a lioness in her full power. In a day where mainstream birth culture commands a deep disconnect and rigid chill, where red tape and politics cloud the core message, where parameters of what birth needs to be restrict birthing people from living their truth and transformation…I feel encouraged. What I experienced in this space – what this woman experienced in her birth – reaffirms that the wisdom and knowledge of wise women who have come before me, the knowledge they have always tried to pass down – this secret…that somewhere along the line, the majority of folks decided to stop listening to…it is still alive. In the darkness of nights, where people like me and people like you fight relentlessly for birthing people to be TRULY and UNCONDITIONALLY supported, I feel encouraged to keep doing the right thing and to continue to use this space to raise awareness for what my heart calls me to. I don’t care how you birth, my wish is to see you feel like THIS. If I could bottle the twinkle in her eyes and the linings of the clouds she is walking on, I would hand deliver it to every ripe and round woman I know and say, “You DESERVE this.” ✨Words and image by @angelawombwarrior. ✨ #birthwithoutfear #optionssupportrespect

This means that the amniotic sac doesn’t rupture during the birth and that the head is born still covered in the membrane. It doesn’t happen very often even in natural births. And almost never happens in the hospital because the ‘water’ is so often broken unnaturally.

Here are some photos of our son born in the caul. – Andrew

‘Bubble’ Caul Baby

‘Bubble’ Caul Baby

I want to share my birth pictures of my caul baby. These were taken by one of my midwives. The pictures show the progression of my daughter coming out with a bubble of amniotic sac coming out before her head. My midwife broke the sac once her head had emerged and we pulled her up to my chest together!

After birth it looked like a jelly fish in the water with its texture and almost-glowing quality. So neat to see!



Edited to Add from the midwife:

“I opened the sac so that she would be ready to take her first breath. I could have done it after she was out of the water but since they take that first breath as soon as they come to the surface into the air, I didn’t want to delay that breath by opening the sac after she was out of the water. I also didn’t want the bag to collapse against her face which could make it harder for me to grasp and open (especially with gloves on). I felt it would be better and easier to do before she was lifted up to you so that we weren’t fumbling with the sac at the same time you were receiving her.

I could have waited until her entire body was out of you and she was still under water, but that would have slightly delayed bringing her to the surface, which I don’t like to do. Water birth is great for many reasons but babies are meant to breath immediately after birth–it’s best not to delay that”
