Dad immediately detects something ‘off’ about baby’s face, then nurse says to take pic

Every life is a beautiful miracle and the memories we make with our family is everything.

Rachel and Nathan Burow, parents-to-be, were eagerly waiting the arrival of their second child.

For several months, the couple planned for the big day, but when it was time, no one could have prepared for what would happen.

I remember when I was pregnant with Isaiah I just wanted to have him already so I could be more in control with protecting him. I had a scare this weekend (everything is fine just needed medication). But it put me in panic mode. I know worrying will forever be apart of motherhood but I can’t wait for the peace I’ll feel once she’s in my arms. 23 more days. • Shirt from @shoppinkblush • • #pinkblush #shoppinkblush #maternity #pregnancyinstyle #thirdtrimester #maternityfashion #thatsdarling #darlingmovement#thehappynow #motherhoodunplugged#childhoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram# #momlife #momblogger #thelittlethings #bestofmom#clickinmoms #ig_motherhood #motherhoodrising#documentyourdays #candidchildhood#motherhood #candidchildhood #holdyourmoments #kindredmemories#momentsinmotherhood #liveauthentic #momblog

Rachel gave birth to baby Annabelle on February 21, via C-section.

Nathan was by his wife’s side during her C-section impatient to embrace his baby daughter.

But when the baby finally came out, Nathan could not believe his eyes – the father was taken by surprise by what he saw.

He immediately noticed there was something “off” about her face. Annabelle’s head looked huge and her facial features were unclear which made Nathan scared stiff.

“To be ‘born with the caul’ means a baby or a child is born with a portion of the amniotic sac or membrane remaining on the head. Being born with a caul is rare, occurring in fewer than 1 in 80,000 births” Annabelle Burow was born February 21st at 8:05am via c-section. Sometimes we get to caught up in the excitement and forget to take a step back and realize the miracle of birth itself. We are completely in awe and I can tell you nothing- no moment can top hearing my babies cry for the first time, no moment can top the first time they were placed in my arms. Babies are such a blessing, such a gift and forever a miracle. • • #thatsdarling #twoundertwo #darlingmovement#thehappynow #motherhoodunplugged#childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #littleandbrave#honestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram# #momlife #momblogger #childofig #thelittlethings #bestofmom#clickinmoms #momswithcameras #pixel_kids #ourcandidlife #motherhoodrising#candidchildhood#motherhood #candidchildhood #momentsinmotherhood #liveauthentic #momblog #caul

The doctors said Annabelle had been ”born with the caul”. That means that means a baby or a child is born with a portion of the amniotic sac or membrane remaining on the head.

Being born with a caul is rare, occurring in fewer than 1 in 80,000 births! The nurse acted quickly and told Nathan to grab his phone and take a picture of the baby.

A birth like this occurs once in 80,000, which is pretty rare and unique.

Nathan told Love What Matters he quickly snapped photos of the rare occurrence, after the nurse assured him everything was OK.

“When I first saw the bubble I was just confused. This didn’t look anything like our son did 17 months earlier. Then I made out her face and got scared for a moment. I thought, ‘This isn’t right! I’ve never seen this.’ I immediately looked at the nurse for reassurance. She said, ‘Quick take a picture, you don’t want to miss this.’ The lack of worry in her expression leveled me out, and without even knowing what I was looking at, I snapped some shots. I didn’t know it was going to be a 1 in 80,000 moment.”, Nathan told Love What Matters.

My husband and I agreed to no more kids after our daughter was born (God willing) and I couldn’t help but tear up at a Blog I read the other day especially since Annabelle hit a first milestone of rolling over, “On the day that your last child is born, you’ll find yourself filled with a jumble of emotions. You’ll feel relief to have finally given birth, pride and joy in the healthy baby in your arms — and sorrow at the realization that you’ll never again experience the primeval miracle of growing a baby inside your body. From that day onward, this strange brew of feelings will remain inside you — because every single one of your youngest child’s firsts will also be your lasts.” . . . #thatsdarling #darlingmovement#thehappynow #motherhoodunplugged#childhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #littleandbrave#honestmotherhood #ig_motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram#momlife #momblogger #childofig #thelittlethings #bestofmom#clickinmoms #momswithcameras #motherhoodrising#documentyourdays #candidchildhood#motherhood #candidchildhood #holdyourmoments #pixel_kids #kindredmemories#momentsinmotherhood #liveauthentic #momblog

“Sometimes we get too caught up in the excitement and forget to take a step back and realize the miracle of birth itself,” Rachael said.

“We are completely in awe,” Rachael continued, “and I can tell you nothing- no moment can top hearing my babies cry for the first time, no moment can top the first time they were placed in my arms.

“Babies are such a blessing, such a gift and forever a miracle.”

I agree with Rachael. Babies have a way of bringing magic and miracles into our lives, they teach us how to be present and live in the moment

Such a big miracle in such a little girl!
