Great pictures & story--I think that baby is so cute--I love newborns!

OT: Pam, I am floored by your sig line quote--I want to get that put onto a bumper sticker or t-shirt. I've never seen it before!

Thanks for those pics!

I love being at a birth where the bag is intact until the babe emerges. Doesn't happen too often, usually the bag breaks about 1-2 contractions before the baby is born, if it hasn't broken already. But man, it is a sight, the bag crowning, the amniotic fluid and vernix swirling around in front of the baby's head. It is like looking at a little universe. Something new and expanding, know what I mean?

And those babies always have such round perfect heads.

I, too have heard that they won't drown; but I hadn't heard the one about them becoming prophets!

hmmm... I wanted to chime in about the "psychic" abilities.

A good older friend of mine talked about her grandmother being born in the caul, and she had psychic abilities and was a mid-wife. Apparently it runs in her family. But she had said something about being born in the caul meant you could see the other side.

Makes you wonder.

I think that if my membranes were not ruptured, my baby would have been born "in the caul". I wonder how many women who have their membranes ruptured, would have had a baby born "in the caul"?

Now I know what that means! I was always wondering about gr8fulmom's sig line.

We very very rarely break a bag of waters. Maybe once this year we did, out of 120+ births.

We have about 2-5 babies a year whose bag of water doesn't break until the head emerges. Another 30% or more (probably more, I'm just guestimating) have the bag of water break about 2-4 contractions before the baby is born.

I would say that at least half of the bags of water break between transition and birth, when you don't mess with things. Maybe even a much greater percentage. I will have to pay attention to that for the next several months, and check more closely to see what the actual percentages are.
