En Caul Birth

The human body is truly an amazing thing. On August 5th, 2017, at about ten in the morning, I started having contractions. I was only 29 weeks and 4 days so I just figured they were Braxton Hicks contractions and decided to wait it out. After about 45 minutes of consistent contractions that were increasing in intensity I decided I should probably go in. I threw on some clothes, grabbed my daughter some clothes, and I left for the hospital. I dropped my daughter off with her God mommy Nicole and headed to the hospital. Well the contractions continued to get closer together and more intense and before I knew it, it was time to push. I called 911 because I was so scared. They couldn’t understand me between the screams with contractions. So I handed the phone to my fiance. I pulled my pants off and reached down, sure enough his head was right there. I pushed one time and my miracle baby was here. When I looked down I realized he was still completely wrapped in the amniotic sac. The dispatcher told us to pull over. But I knew we would make it to the hospital before they would make it to us. So I told Ean to keep driving. I was so scared. My fiance was so calm driving and on the phone with 911. At first the baby was still and all I could do was pray he would be okay. And then I rubbed his face with my thumb and he pulled his little hands and feet up to his face as if he understood my prayers and wanted to reassure us he was okay. About seven minutes passed that I held this miracle baby in my hands until we made it to the hospital. A familiar face came running out and grabbed my baby. He was born en caul. This happens one in every 80,000 births, usually during C-section. He was 3lb 1oz. He’s doing wonderful, all things considered. After all he went through I know he’s going to be an awesome little man! He is truly a miracle baby. We are so blessed to be his parents.

This mother is as amazing as her son. I post this in an effort to continue to educate the world about the humanity of prenatal children. This little boy was only 29 weeks old and yet completely legal to kill in the United States while cradled in the womb. Only his current location grants him human rights. Just seconds before this photo was taken, he was considered property to be disposed of at will. Is this really the kind of world we want our children to inherit? Can you think of any time in your life that you didn’t deserve human rights?
