All pregnant women want an easy, smooth, and fast delivery. Most of them make it full term and give birth between 36 and 40 weeks. This is normal and the baby can make it without any medical interventions.
But this mom, Raelin Scurry had a totally different delivery experience and the baby was born En Caul. She shared her birth experience in the social media and it is just amazing.
Raelin felt her contractions at only 29 weeks into the pregnancy and all that she thought was that they were Braxton Hicks contractions. She decided to wait thinking that it would go away after a while.
But her contractions were getting stronger and worse, she realized it is time to go to the hospital. What she didn’t expect is that she would deliver her baby right inside her car.
She and her fiancé were going to the hospital and Raelin felt the strong urge to push. When she did push and reach down, she felt her baby’s head crowning. And, one hard push her baby came out still inside the amniotic sac.
They prayed along the way to the hospital that their son should make it and indeed, he did. Raelin also has a daughter and shared her little son’s birth story.
The birth story she wrote on social media is below.
Our birth story! The human body is truly an amazing thing.
8.5.2017 at about 10 am I started having contractions.
I was only 29 weeks and 4 days so I just figured they were Braxton Hicks 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, [then] her, my fiancé and I left for the hospital.
I dropped my daughter to her Godmommy Nicole and headed to the hospital.
Well the contractions continued to get closer together and more intense and before I knew it I knew 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 fiancé. 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 fiancé 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 7 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 1 in every 80,000 births. Usually during C-section.
He was 3lb 1oz. He’s doing wonderful all things considered 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.
The birth of her miracle baby is one awesome story she would have for a lifetime to tell the little one.
