Baby born in sac – level 1

11-03-2015 15:00

A baby is born in California. His birth is very special.

Doctors cut him out of his mother. He is born premature. He is born inside the amniotic sac.

This does not happen a lot. The sac usually breaks when a baby is born.

There are pictures of this baby. You can see him inside the sac. You can see his hands and a leg. Doctors cut him out of the sac. They help him breathe.

Now, the baby is ten weeks old. He is healthy. Doctors say that he can go home soon.

Difficult words: premature (early), amniotic sac (the baby lives in this bag when he is inside his mother), breathe (to take air in the body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
