Picture Of Newborn Baby Holding Mum’s Failed Coil Goes Vɪʀᴀʟ Around The World
Surprisingly, the woman’s first child, Gabriel, was also born when she was on the ᴘɪʟʟ
Birth photographer Michelle Oliveira described Bernado as a “miracle”. She said that when her second baby was born the coil was removed and given to him to hold.
Michelle said: “The I.U.D ᴡᴀs ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇᴅ in his little hand to represent his arrival. The baby was born, the I.U.D was removed straight away, and the doctor ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇᴅ it in his little hand.”
The pregnancy rate for women using I.U.D.s is just 0.6 percent, ᴀᴄᴄᴏʀᴅɪɴɢ ᴛᴏ ᴏʙsᴛᴇᴛʀɪᴄɪᴀɴ Beatriz Tupinamba.
In most pregnancies involving coils, doctors try to remove the device at the earliest possible opportunity. However, in Paula’s case, it was not possible, because the wire was not visible. I.U.D strings are usually visible from the ᴄᴇʀᴠɪx, which is where the doctor would typically remove it from.
Sometimes, the I.U.D strings curl up into the ᴄᴇʀᴠɪx, making it less visible. When that occurs, doctors will use a small tool to grasp the strings or use an ultrasound to guide them to the device. But when the ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs has grown along with the fetus, sometimes the device cannot be reached.In that case, the only option is to leave the device in place. Otherwise, there’s a high ʀɪsᴋ ᴏF ɪɴᴊᴜʀɪɴɢ the mother or the pregnancy. But this was not Paula’s first “miracle” child; her older son Gabriel was born when she was on ᴏʀᴀʟ ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴇᴘᴛɪᴠᴇs, also known as “the ᴘɪʟʟ”. If used exactly as instructed, the estimated ʀɪsᴋ of getting pregnant while on the combined ᴏʀᴀʟ ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴇᴘᴛɪᴠᴇ ᴘɪʟʟ is just 0.3 percent, according to the World Health Organization.
“I repeat that when He wants something, nothing will get in His way. This arrival was beautiful and exciting. What a joy to share this rarity! Welcome, Bernardo!” Oliveira said on her Instagram.
