Brazil: Twins Are Born In Amniotic Sac In Extremely Rare Birth

Images that were shared with social media users in Brazil show twins born inside the amniotic sac.

This birth is considered an extremely rare event, where it is only observed during 1 in 80,000 births.

The mother of the baby gave birth to Brayan and Emanuel at an unnamed hospital in the city of Criciuma, which is located in the Southern Part of Brazil.

The amniotic sac has water inside.

Keila, the mother, and Gilma Concatto da Silva, the couple, live in the municipality of Forquilhinha.

Brayan was born weighing around 2.546 kilograms and was around 17.3 inches long, and Emanuel, who is younger by 9 minutes, weighed at around 2.346 kilograms and was around 17.5 inches long.

Emanuel was removed from the sac by a professional medical team.

The mother and her babies are currently doing well.
