The incredible footage shows doctors removing the baby from the uterus while it is still completely secure inside the intact amniotic sac – also known as caul.

The baby was born via caesarean section and the clip was later shared by Facebook page Birth Without Fear.

Medics then carefully place the baby on its mother's stomach before one of them to breaks the amniotic sac open using their fingers.
