Nature works in wonderful ways. Well, at least that’s what we can say for all the miracles surrounding us! Raelin Scurry too had a similar experience when she was pregnant with her second child. Mid labour she realized that it might be too late to save the baby but destiny had different plans!
Scurry was 29 weeks pregnant when one morning she started experiencing cramps. She brushed it aside without thinking too much about it. But the pain didn’t subside.
Scurry realized that she was going into premature labour. The contractions were intensifying with each passing minute. She grabbed the car keys and took her elder child with her. Her fiance drove them to a friend’s house where they dropped off the elder child.
Time was crucial now. She dialled 911 in a hurry, asking for help but with the screams she let out because of the pain, it was difficult for them to understand what she was saying. She handed the phone to her fiance and pulled her pants off. The baby’s head was already peeking out. With another push her she gave birth to her miracle baby on the way to the hospital.
Things, however, weren’t all right yet. She realized that the baby was still in the amniotic sac. It was a sac filled with clear fluid where the baby floats and moves around in the womb.
‘At first, the baby was still and all I could do was pray he would be okay. And then I rubbed his face with my thumb and he pulled his little hands and feet up to his face as if he understood my prayers and wanted to reassure us he was okay. About seven minutes passed that I held this miracle baby in my hands until we made it to the hospital,’ Scurry wrote in a heart-rending Instagram post.
The newborn, Braxton, was declared healthy by the doctors. Only 1 in 80,000 babies are born with the amniotic sac intact. It is truly amazing to think that the sac kept the baby safe till they reached the hospital. If that isn’t a miracle we don’t know what is!
Braxton is doing fine now. His parents are more than happy with the new addition to the family and his wonderful entrance!
