Prepare your eyes for one of the most creepy Alien-esque spectacles they will ever ever see.
This is the unnerving moment doctors in Venezuela performed what is known as a ‘gentle’ caesarean section on a woman before posting the end result to Instagram.
As you can see below the jaw-dropping, and very graphic, clip shows a baby pushing themselves into the world through a tiny incision in their mother’s stomach.

Apparently the gentle caesarean was made by a team of surgeons who carried out a small cut in the unnamed woman’s abdomen making way for the baby to slide through relatively naturally, reports The Independent.
This bizarre type of alternative c-section has many benefits according to experts, claiming that slower, natural caesareans reduce the bulk of health risks and allow the mother to feel more involved in her baby’s birth.
As well as this – after the baby is born it is immediately placed on the mother’s chest, which is supposed to even further create an instantaneous bond between the two.
Since being posted onto Instagram last week the post has been viewed almost 16,ooo times.
I, personally have watched it around a dozen times by now and it is still just as fascinating as it was the first time around.
