In a viral photo making the rounds online, shows a newborn baby holding his mum’s contraceptive coil which failed to stop her falling pregnant with him.
In the photo, his mother’s yellow and black intrauterine device could be seen been held firmly in the hands of the new born baby at Hai Phong International Hospital in the city of Hai Phong in northern Vietnam.
Obstetrician Tran Viet Phuong said the device had come out when the baby was born.
Dr Phuong told local media:
“After delivery, I thought him holding the device was interesting, so I took a picture.
“I never thought it would receive so much attention.”
The baby’s 34-year-old mother claims she had the coil inserted two years earlier but it did not work because she later discovered she was pregnant.
