A woman who gave birth after her contraception “failed” has shared a photo of the extra surprise her newborn arrived with.
The little boy, who was born at Hai Phong International Hospital in northern Vietnam, arrived into the world reportedly clutching his mum’s contraceptive device in a hilarious snap that has since gone viral.
While the mum has remained anonymous, the images were shared by obstetrician Tran Viet Phuong, who said she thought it was “interesting” he was clasping the intra-uterine device (IUD) as he came into the world.

“After delivery, I thought him holding the device was interesting, so I took a picture. I never thought it would receive so much attention,” she said.
The baby’s 34-year-old mother said she had the coil inserted two years earlier but it clearly didn’t work because she later found out she was pregnant.
Dr Phuong explained the device may have been moved from its original position, becoming an ineffective form of contraception and allowing the mother to become pregnant.
The baby was healthy when born, weighing 3.2kg – a third baby for the mum who already had two children.
