Incredible footage shows baby CRAWLING out of mum’s womb during natural C-section

INCREDIBLE footage shows a baby crawling out of his mum’s womb.

The little boy was born via a natural C-section, often called a gentle C-section, where doctors guide a baby out through an incision in the mum’s abdomen.

It’s thought by experts to be better for the baby because it compresses the lungs, helping get rid of any remaining amniotic fluid – simulating a slower, vaginal birth.

It also provides instant skin-to-skin contact between mum and her little one, which helps with bonding.

In the video clip that was shared on a pregnancy-related Instagram account the doctor can be seen holding the baby’s head while he wriggles out of the womb.

Slowly the baby twists his shoulders free.

 The head is delivered first then the baby crawls out of the womb The head is delivered first then the baby crawls out of the womb  Once the baby's head is out he is able to wriggle his shoulders free Once the baby’s head is out he is able to wriggle his shoulders free  The baby gets his arms free and is able to pull himself from the womb The baby gets his arms free and is able to pull himself from the womb

Once his shoulders are out he is able to move about a bit more until his arms pop out.

He then uses his arms to help himself crawl out of the womb and onto his mum.

The whole time the mum is conscious and watching her baby being born.

Regular, planned C-sections involve medics delivering the baby, pulling the little one out of the incision in the womb themselves.

 The whole time he is being born his mum is conscious and able to watch The whole time he is being born his mum is conscious and able to watch  The baby is able to push himself out of the womb with his legs The baby is able to push himself out of the womb with his legs  Once he is born he is placed on his mums chest and allowed to breastfeed Once he is born he is placed on his mums chest and allowed to breastfeed

While emergency C-sections can require medics to act even faster, as they are typically carried out when baby or mum is in distress.

But in a gentle C-section the head is delivered first then the rest is gently squeezed out.

The baby is then placed straight onto the mothers chest and is breastfed, exactly how it would be done in a vaginal birth, to maximise skin-to-skin contact.

Skin-to-skin contact is said to help regulate the baby’s temperature and heart after birth and make the bonding process easier.

The mother can also opt to have the screen that usually blocks the C-section from view taken down to allow her to witness the birth of her child.

A gentle C-section is said to make the process more emotional and less clinical for the parents.
