Baby born in sac - level 2
In California, doctors cut a baby out of his mother 26 weeks early and something unusual happened. The baby was born inside of the amniotic sac. Few babies are born like this because the sac normally breaks during birth.
Someone took pictures of the baby boy when he was inside the sac. You can see his hands and a leg. He still had the placenta and umbilical cord with him, also. Doctors helped him once they cut him out of the sac.
The baby is ten weeks old now. The doctors said that he can go home soon.
Difficult words: amniotic sac (a baby who is not born yet lives inside this sac – bag), placenta (an organ which feeds and helps the baby), umbilical cord (the long skin the mother’s body makes to join her to her baby)
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
