The footage taken from a birth in a Berlin hospital is a medical first, showing the moments that a baby emerges from its mother.

The mother was inside the MRI machine for 45 minutes during the final big push.

The contractions can be seen in action as the uterus puts pressure on the baby, causing the baby to slide down the birth canal.

It’s either a beautiful example of the miracle of birth, or like something from the Alien trilogy, depending on your point of view.

MRI scanners work as a safe version of the radioactive x-ray. They utilise powerful magnets and radio waves to scan internal organs.
