Baby With CaulThe amniotic sac or membrane surrounds the foetus and amniotic fluid in the uterus. During labour the membrane ruptures and allows the baby to be born. A caul is a small part of the membrane that sticks to the baby’s head after birth.

It has no medical meaning and can be easily peeled from the baby’s head, but superstitious people believe that a baby born with a caul will never die by drowning.
