In 2010, an international team of doctors and scientists announced that they had successfully recorded the world’s first video of childbirth using magnetic resonance imaging(MRI). Now, 2 years later, they have released that video footage to the public. It is the first time such a video has been released.

Back in December, 2010, a 24 year old young woman had been admitted in the Charité University Hospital, Berlin, Germany. She was pregnant and about to give birth of a child. At the time of childbirth, the lady was being scanned in an Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine. This was the first time in the history where a video had been captured at the moment of birth using MRI system. Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses radio waves and powerful magnetic fields to create images of structures within the body. The MRI scanner clearly recorded the baby’s journey from its mother’s birth canal into the big wide world.

The researchers stopped the MRI later in the second stage to avoid exposing the baby’s ears to noise from the machine. This video footage helped the team to have a clearer view of the precise position and movement of a fetus through the birth canal. Have a look of the video.

For the full history, you can head over to American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology (AJOG).

In the future, the team also hopes to visualise the first stage of labour using the same technique, possibly using the videos to create virtual-reality computer training. I hope, you have never seen childbirth like this. You can share your comment regarding the story below in the comment box.
