Baby Bump: Baby Born in the Caul

Every pregnant woman wonders when her water is going to break. Will she be at work or wet the floor? Who will clean up the liquid mess while she rushes to the hospital? Well, some mamas-to-be never experience the gushing and it's not because their doctor ruptures the bag of waters for them. Though it's rare, some babies are born in the caul, meaning they are delivered in the amniotic sac. Normally, the membrane is then broken by the medic or midwife. According to lore, a veiled infant was lucky and would never drown.

Do you know anyone that was born in the caul?
