A baby is born with his mother's IUD in his hand

In Vietnam, a baby is born with his mother's IUD in his hand. Intrigued, the obstetrician present during the birth immortalized this moment.

This is a rather unusual photo. In northern Vietnam, at Haiphong International Hospital, a mother recently gave birth to a third baby boy. If the delivery went well, one element however challenged the nursing staff. The mother having been equipped with an intrauterine device (IUD) for two years (which apparently did not work), the doctors and midwives were amazed to find that the newborn baby had caught it in her hand leaving. The obstetrician present, Tran Viet Phuong, said that the IUD and the baby came out at the same time and that the infant took it soon after.

Reported by the British media Daily Mail, the story has gone around the world, as Tran Viet Phuong notes. “After giving birth, I found the fact that he was holding the device interesting, so I took a picture. I never thought he would receive so much attention ". Everything ended well since the baby born at 1.5 kg is doing well, as well as his mother. They also remained under observation as a precaution.
