Doctors were stunned when they saw what a baby did during an ultrasound scan.
The first ultrasound of a pregnancy can be an intimidating experience. Parents never know what to expect and thinking of the endless possibilities can be frightening. However, sometimes go the opposite way and, not only is the baby healthy, but something truly incredible happens.
In the video below, an amazing moment was captured during a couple’s 14-week ultrasound. The parents were incredibly nervous for the scan and had no clue what to expect. When the doctor placed the device against the mother’s stomach, everybody in the room was shocked – even the doctors.
The doctor showed the parents that their baby was perfectly healthy and was developing normally, but also pointed out something spectacular – their baby was clapping in the womb.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by the mother, Jen Cardinal, and it has been viewed more than 11 million times so far.
Despite some commenters expressing doubt about the legitimacy of the incident, Cardinal stands by her experience.
“The experience is one I’ll never forget, the baby clapped three times, then the doctor rewound and scrubbed it while we sang,” she wrote in a comment. “No mystery. It was amazing. Trolls won’t get me down!”
