When photographer Robin Baker was asked to document a home birth of twins, she didn’t expect what her camera would catch.
Firstly, en-caul babies are born entirely in their amniotic sac.
You might recall we shared with you recently an incredible video of a baby being born en-caul (and it went VIRAL for all the right reasons) – this time round the couple (who are home birthers for the second time and knew that they were having twins) had no way of knowing that their second baby would be born en caul.
Baby A was born 30 minutes ahead of baby B (the en caul baby).
Baker told BuzzFeed, “We didn’t know the baby would deliver completely en caul until he was crowning.”
Baby B was born completely in his amniotic sac.
He stayed in his sac until mum broke it with her fingernail.
Both babies were born healthy – right at home!
Not only did Baker do amazing job documenting this rare at-home birth, but she was recently awarded “Best in Category: Delivery” from the International Association of Birth Photographers.
