Newborn Pictured Holding Mum’s COIL After She Got Pregnant Despite Her IUD

Heartwarming images show a newborn holding his mum’s coil which failed to prevent a pregnancy.

Paula dos Santos Escudero Alvarez, 32, gave birth to Bernado on July 4 in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

Paula, already a mum to one, had been using the birth control – called an intrauterine device (IUD) but better known as the coil – for three years.

But she fell pregnant anyway, which is extremely rare, as the device works for between five and ten years.

Bernardo was born healthy at 36 weeks, weighing just over 3kg (7lbs).

Shockingly Paula’s first child, Gabriel, was also born when she was on the Pill.

Birth photographer Michelle Oliveira described Bernado as a “miracle”.

She told Newsflash that when Bernado was born the coil was removed and given to him to hold.

The tiny boy clutched it in his hands as he laid on his mum for the first time.

Michelle said: “The IUD was placed in his little hand to represent his arrival.

“The baby was born, the IUD was removed straight away, and the doctor placed it in his little hand.”

Michelle wrote on Instagram that “there are no barriers that stop a miracle”.

She said: “This arrival was beautiful and exciting. What a joy to share this rarity! Welcome, Bernardo!”
