Doctors who performed the Caesarean section on his mother, Chelsea, were shocked to see his amniotic sac was still intact. Pictures show Silas curled up inside with the placenta and umbilical cord, his tiny hands and a leg clearly visible.

The amniotic sac is a bag of fluid inside a woman’s womb (uterus) where the unborn baby develops and grows and it breaks on its own. This is referred to as a mother’s ‘water breaking’.

Doctors revealed that being born with the amniotic sac intact is extremely rare and happens in just around one in 80,000 births.

Silas’ mum, Chelsea could not hide her excitement while speaking to newsmen, she said: “It was definitely like a clear film where you could definitely make out his head and his hair.

“He was kind of in a foetal position and you could see like his arms and his legs curled up.

‘It was actually really cool to see. And when I heard that was actually really rare I was like “oh my gosh you’re a special little baby”.’
