A Vietnamese baby who was born in Hoi Phong International Hospital came out of his mother’s womb holding an IUD device in one of his hands.
According to his mother, she got the contraceptive device two years ago after giving birth to two kids.
His healthy boy’s eyes were closed and the IUD was pressed hard onto his face. Doctors believe the device shifted after being placed thus causing the mum to get pregnant. The obstetrician who helped the little kid’s mum deliver snapped the photo so the memory could be etched in her mind for the rest of her life. She was so tickled by the occurrence and found it to be quite bizarre and intriguing at the same time.
Tran Viet Phuong, the doctor, said she was captured by how the baby made his way into the world clutching onto the device meant to prevent it from being born. “After delivery, I thought him holding the device was interesting, so I took a picture. I never thought it would receive so much attention,” she said. The baby was healthy and weighed an impressive 3.2kgs. Viet explained the contraceptive device possibly shifted from its original position thus rendering it ineffective.
