Your vocabulary lesson of the day is “To be born in the caul”
We say that babies are born in the caul when they are born with their membranes intact surrounded by their amniotic fluid. It’s pretty uncommon for it to happen much in hospitals now because many nurse midwives and obstetricians break laboring women’s water to try to speed along labor. I have seen a few at home births, in fact the first baby I caught as an apprentice midwife was a baby girl born in the caul at midnight on a full moon. It was a pretty special birth! <3 This little one seems to have had a surgical assist into this world. 
And now you’ve had a peek into the fetal world from which we all originated and a little lesson in natural childbirth vocabulary.
