Seeing a new born baby walk for the first time is one of the happiest moments for any parent, but one has to wait patiently to witness the first step and it usually takes about a year or so.
This story is completely a one of a kind story when a mother, nurses and doctors in Brazil were left astonished after a baby, who just came out of the womb, started taking a couple of steps a few moments after it was born.
According to different online reports, the midwife who was cradling the infant across the chest with one arm couldn’t believe what she saw as the infant wrestled to walk on her own.
On a recorderd footage, the nurse, who was seen to be dressed in surgical robes with a clinical mask over her mouth, was heard crying out in amazement while she was giving the newborn a bath: “Oh my gosh, the girl is walking. Good gracious!”
When the midwife tried to put the baby down, she tried to get up probably to start walking again.
They also called another colleague to come in and witness the unbelievable rare moment.
The video was since then posted on Facebook by Arlete Arantes from Brazil. It is, however, unclear when the video was taken.
The 41-second video has taken everyone on the internet by storm and has got over 70 million views. It has been shared over 1.5 million times and has garnered over 325,000 reactions. Probably getting a bunch more as I speak.
For the unversed, the baby walking is a natural action called the ‘stepping reflex,’ this reflex is also referred to as the walking or dance reflex because the baby appears to take steps or dance when held upright with his or her feet touching a solid surface.
