Birth Story: Woman gives birth in the Red Sea, emerges like a goddess

Russian woman gives birth in the Red Sea

It’s the water birth with a great big twist – the incredible moment a woman emerges from the Red Sea, just minutes after giving birth … looking like she’s just had a morning dip.

It’s believed the woman is a Russian tourist, who travelled to the resort town of Dahab in Egypt to give birth in the Red Sea – a pilgrimage that’s becoming increasingly popular.

The amazing series of snaps was shared by Hadia Hosny El Said who says she took the images from her uncle’s home. She claims the older man with the baby is a Russian doctor who specialises in water births. It’s assumed the younger man is the baby’s father.

The baby is carried from the Red Sea, umbilical cord attached and placenta in a plastic bowl. Waiting on the shore is a child, who is likely the sibling of the brand new bub. The family then appears to soak up the beautiful moment, while they take their own photos.
