The baby was delivered through caesarean section in Amarousion, north of Athens in Greece. Dr Tsigris said the baby would not have sensed that it was outside the mother's body as it was still protected by the sac.

He added that the baby was still feeding off the placenta and that it was not at any risk. Once the sac was broken, the baby would be able to breathe on its own.

The amniotic sac remaining completely intact after birth is very rare. Usually, the sac breaks on its own when the baby has developed fully.
