A viral photo of a new born baby has surfaced the internet after it was born holding the contraceptive the mother used in preventing the pregnancy.
The strange incident happened in Hai Phong Iternational Hospital in Hai Phong, Vietnam, leaving Doctors in amazement.
The 34 year old mother revealed that she had the contraceptive coil inserted two years ago but as soon as she found out she was pregnant, she knew it didn’t work.
Obstetrician Tran Viet Phuong said the device had come out when the baby was born. The infant had it held firmly in his hands when the picture was taken, it is claimed.
Dr Phuong also said the device may have been moved from its original position, which made it ineffective thereby making the mother become pregnant.
Dr Phuong told the local media that he never thought the photo would go viral, as he just felt like taking a picture of the infant holding the device.
“After delivery, I thought him holding the device was interesting, so I took a picture. I never thought it would receive so much attention.”
However, the baby was born healthy and both mother and child are still in the hospital, to be discharged soon.
