Mum shares story of premature "miracle baby" born in amniotic sack

The picture itself is jaw-dropping, but the story Scurry shared in the caption makes the whole event even more impressive.

"After about 45 minutes of consistent contractions that were increasing in intensity I decided I should probably go in", she posted, on August 24.

She noticed that the contractions were getting closer and more intense. She dialed 911, but the dispatcher couldn't understand her over the screams from the painful contractions, as she describes in a viral Instagram post.

Before they arrived at the hospital, she gave birth to the boy still in the water-filled sac. Scared she handed over the phone to her fiance. "That was the craziest part for me, reaching down and feeling his head", she said. "I pushed one time and my miracle baby was here When I looked down I realised he was still completely wrapped in the amniotic sac". "He'll be home before we know it", Scurry told KDKA. But she did not make it to a hospital since she knew it was time.

About 7 minutes passed as Raelin held her "miracle baby" in her hands until they made it to the hospital. "I was so scared".

Scurry and her fiancé Ean Vanstory, both 24, dropped her daughter off at her godmother's house and headed to the hospital, but her contractions continued to grow in intensity.

Ryan Dillon told Reuters that he did not know if the convoy was now in Syrian government territory or in ISIS-held territory. But officials of the US -led coalition said they will continue to monitor the convoy and aren't ruling out more airstrikes.

"At first he was very still, and I went to his face like this through the sac", Scurry told local TV station KDKA. In addition to arriving 11 weeks early and being delivered inside the vehicle, little EJ was also born completely surrounded by the amniotic sac, BuzzFeed reports. He was 3 pounds, 1 ounce when he was born. "He doing wonderful all things considered", she explained. Scurry wrote. "He is truly a miracle baby. We are so blessed to be his parents", said the proud mum.

There are a few videos online of en caul babies, including one that went viral past year.

Astonishingly, though, he had remained in his amniotic sac, a rare occurrence that happens in less than one in 80,000 births, according to Cedars Sinai. A crowd of doctors and nurses rushed the vehicle and the doctors took the baby, broke his water and cut the umbilical cord, outside the auto.

Baby Ean, who was born en caul in his parents' auto, is breathing and eating on his own even though he was 11 weeks early. "There's nothing special", Dr. Greves says.

The amniotic sac is a membrane that surrounds the baby as it grows in utero. But the baby does need to be removed from the sac at some point so its lungs can start working, Dr. Greves says.
