Incredible moment: Orangutan mother gives birth to her first baby

Childbirth is one of the most magical and memorable moments in a mother’s life.

Nothing compares to the joy of welcoming a living being into the world, and this is not only true for humans, but also for mothers in the animal kingdom.

Never-before-seen footage of the ‘miraculous birth’ of a Sumatran orangutan has been captured by cameras from the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Conservation staff say the Sumatran orangutan is giving birth to her very first baby.

At first they thought this new mom was sterile, but they were wrong. She surprised them all with her newborn baby.

As you can see in the video, the mom sucks on the baby’s bag before giving him a soft hug.

When the little baby is clean, she takes him in her arms and shows him to his guardians. What a magical moment!

One person commented, “What a smooth delivery. I didn’t know orangutans could get medical degrees.

Another wrote: ‘I love how proud this mum was when she cradled her newborn baby and came over to show off her new addition. Not to mention the proud Papa in the background!

Ahhh, the beauty of life.
