My little boy was born in March 2010 and was fully inside his amniotic sac "born in the caul". He came so fast that I had virtually NO labor! I took a nap about an hour before he was born; then woke up bloody and he was crowning! He was born in 15mins without any drugs, and almost without a doctor because he came so fast! The doctor said she has delivered close to 400 babies and had never seen anything like that before. At the time I didn't know what was happening when I looked down all I could see was my baby inside a thin film sac; moving and opening and closing his mouth but we couldn't hear him until the doctor broke the amniotic sac. He was wrapped in a bubble with the water in the sac fully enclosed still! I hadn't heard of this before so I didn't know that I should've requested the sac to be saved. Sorry that I didn't now after everything that I've read about it. However, I am wondering if anyone has any more information other than what I've read online about what it means to be "born in the caul".....and if anyone has any personal experience with this phenomena?
Upon birth he has had full control of his neck and head and could look around a room immediately. He has also had full control of his eyes (never went cross-eyed or never seemed like he could only see up close)...he examines everyone individually when they enter a room! He'll stare people down and it's like he's studying them. My little boy is happy, healthy, sweet and has eyes that "know"...he is 7mos young and began full-on crawling at 4mos; began standing and cruising on the furniture at 6mos. and already saying "hi"! He's very sensitive to people who display lots of nervous energy or are a bit too upbeat.
Hoping to hear from some other parents that want to share about the new children being born these days (2008-2010)*
