Doctors at Hai Phong International Hospital in Vietnam got front row seats to an unusual event in the maternity ward. A woman gave birth to a child that came with a "surprise" in hand.
Once the little boy came into the world, doctors realized he was holding a copper 'T' in his hand. It was an IUD, a form of birth control that the mother had put in before she got pregnant.
According to Alerta Bogota, the mother was slightly embarrassed, but finally being able to hold her baby in her arms made up for it. Her story, which the Vietnamese hospital itself shared on its Facebook page, has gone viral.
The doctors and nurses who were in the delivery room took pictures of the little boy holding the strange object in his hand and are still amazed that he came into the world holding the contraceptive in his little hand.
Doctor Phuong, who was in charge of the delivery, confirmed that IUD's can be pushed inside the uterus during sexual intercourse. However, experts insist that this device is more than 99% effective for 10 years.
The IUD is a contraceptive method used by many women around the world. Despite what happened to this woman, rest assured - it's very effective when inserted correctly.
