Just had another birth announcement, bringing this week's total to 5!! This time news that the baby was born "en caul" which means the amniotic sac was still intact at birth. Really rare, some sources claim as few as 1 in 80,000 births and lots of cultures regard this phenomenon as extremely good luck. Congratulations to all the families getting to know their new babies this week ??

We wonder if the delivery is less shocking for babies born en caul.
