This is the incredibly rare moment a baby boy was born inside his amniotic sac during an emergency caesarean.
Businesswoman Janaina Fernandes Costa, 34, gave birth to son Lucas Fernandes de Lisboa Costa at the Hospital Ana Costa, in the south-eastern Brazilian state of Sao Paulo.
Footage shows baby Lucas still inside his amniotic sac after the mother-of-three underwent the emergency procedure because of gestational hypertension – high blood pressure during pregnancy.

Surgeons then cut open the fluid-filled sac as tiny hands and feet can be seen wriggling inside.
One doctor, Guilherme Pereira Martins, who recorded the moment, claimed that a baby born inside its amniotic sac is rare and occurs once in every 80,000 natural births.
