I thought this was one of the most beautiful and amazing things I have ever seen in my life and I wanted to share with you guys!!

Giving birth with the amniotic sac is called a veiled birth. It is very rare but possible. It is less painful because the water cushions the baby's head, meaning less bruising for the both of you. Don't worry about the baby drowning...he or she won't take the first breath until he/she hits the air for the first time. The placenta will provide oxygen until that happens.

This is what happened to my husband! I talked to my OB about it and he said in 30 years of practice he has never had it happen but actually read that it was much more painful because there is very little liquid between the sac and the mom so it is like dry pushing the sac/baby out with no lubrication.

Anyways - they popped my husband's sac with a scalpal when he came out and nicked him a bit. Apparently the nurses were so freaked out by it they werent paying attention.

I don't know about being more or less painful but it is healthier for the baby.  It happens much more frequently is home births.
