Photos of a water birth that took place in the ocean have recently gone viral. A Russian pregnant woman went for dip in the Red Sea in Egypt only to deliver the baby in the water.
The incredible photos show two men, believed to have helped the woman during the water birth, emerging from the sea, with an older man carrying the newborn. The unusual childbirth happened in a resort in Dahab.
As seen on the photos, the baby’s umbilical cord was still attached and the placenta placed in a container.
Moments after giving birth, the mother came out of the water.
She later on went to reunite with her newborn.
The older man in the photos is reportedly the woman’s doctor while the other is believed to be her partner.
While no names have been revealed, it was reported that the doctor specializes in water births.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the photos were taken by Hadia Hosny El Said from her uncle, Mohamed Elsaid’s hotel balcony.
Hadia then uploaded the photos on Facebook and these went viral. People were impressed by the “beauty” and “ease” of water births.
It is believed that this water birth was planned since a doctor was around.
The photo also shows an older child, who is believed to belong to the same woman.
Dahab, where the water birth happened, is a resort town situated on the southeastern coast of the Sinai Peninsula. Local media reports stated that Dahab is becoming a more and more popular spot for many mothers want to have a sea water birth. While water births have been an acceptable child delivery method, with gynecologists and obstetricians supporting it given that the pregnant woman is healthy, many were concerned about a baby being born in sea water.
Although the woman may look like she’d just taken a casual swim, some experts believe that delivering a baby in the ocean can be risky. Dr. Saima Aftab, medical director at Fetal Care Center at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, Miami, told Live Science that people shouldn’t think that ocean birth is perfectly safe.
“I worry that this is a completely dangerous environment for the baby even in the presence of a medical professional.”
