Incredible images of a newborn baby holding his mom’s failed contraceptive coil have taken the internet by storm. The 34-year-old mom already has two other kids, so she had the intrauterine device (IUD) inserted two years ago. Apparently, the device failed to do its job, and she became pregnant. She gave birth to a healthy baby at Hai Phong International Hospital, in Hai Phong, Vietnam, but what stunned everyone was the baby that came out with the IUD gripped in his hand.
Obstetrician Tran Viet Phoung said that the baby held the device firmly in his hands when the picture was taken.
Phuong told local media that he thought that the baby holding the device was interesting, so he took the photo, and he never imagined that it would receive so much attention.
The 34-year-old mom-of-three told local media that the IUD that was inserted two years earlier didn’t work, and she later discovered that she was pregnant.
The picture was first shared on the hospital’s social media channels, where it received thousands of engagements.
