This is an incredibly beautiful picture.
As an anesthesiologist, I have participated in hundreds of Cesarean sections and deliveries, but I never had the opportunity to witness what is happening in this picture.
A doctor from Greece delivered this term baby via Cesarean section with an intact amniotic sac. Normally the sac is broken as the baby is removed from the mother, but in this case the baby, the placenta, and sac are still attached.
The baby continues in the fetal position and does not realize yet that he has been born! The baby is still 100% dependent on mom as his respiration and circulation are still provided by the placenta. In the next few moments the doctor will break “the water,” suction the airway, clamp the umbilical cord, and the baby will take his first breath.
The tragic irony is that in many cases across the world today, abortionists will reach in and shred a baby like this one to pieces in what they call late-term or partial-birth abortions.
By the grace of God this baby will not endure such pain and horror.
The delivering doctor said he was left “breathless” by the beauty of this scene.
How can one not be left in awe of God’s intricate design of life?
“…you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” Psalm 139:13-14
Oh, wow! That is amazing! Even though my children did not enter this world in such a dramatic fashion, I was still in awe of what God had done each and every time I delivered. How beautiful is the God who has created life!
Yes! Our God is a God of life, and his Spirit is the Spirit of life (romans 8)
Wow what an amazing pic! It’s hard for me to fathom that anyone can experience pregnancy,delivery or even parenthood without believing in God!
Tears are flowing . . . indeed our Lord knew us before we were born how could He have not knitted and put us together . . . Amen and Amen and God Bless you!
Thank you for the kind words! I hope this picture will convict one person out there who may change their mind about having an abortion, especially a late term abortion…
That is amazing
