When it comes to bringing life into this world, it truly is a miracle.

It’s incredible that mammals, whether animal or human, house a baby for months before they bring it into this world. Many find it beautiful and quite fascinating to watch – whether it be a human or another species from the animal kingdom. But in this case viewers had the chance to witness a Sumatran orangutan giving birth, right from their computer screens.

When the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust released footage of Dana the orangutan welcoming her baby into the world, it was the first orangutan birth captured on film. But that’s not the only reason why it was so special.

25-year-old Dana had suffered complications during a prior pregnancy. Sadly, the baby was stillborn and her health was put at risk.

Dana at that point was considered infertile due to her fallopian tubes being blocked. However, thanks to the brilliant head obstetrician at Jersey General Hospital, she ended up being able to conceive again.

The father was a 28-year-old male orangutan named “Dagu.”

Because of her history, the day Dana gave birth to her baby truly was a miracle.

A camera was set up to capture footage of the special event. Dana delivers the baby by herself in the video, although there was a professional team observing from afar. Viewers get an up-close view of the very moment the baby enters the world. Please be aware that the video below is a bit graphic…

Dana immediately gets to work with her first duty as a mom.

After catching the baby orangutan in her hands, the new mama cradles it. She then uses her mouth to clean it up.

One observer in the video points out, “She’s starting to remove the amniotic sac.”

While we might be used to having a nurse cleanse our babies after their big arrival – it’s not how it works in nature. Dana is the one in charge of this process!

Soon, the infant starts showing more life by moving and screeching. Dana even helps clear its airways with her lips.

One viewer commented:

“Aww, cries just likе a human baby, its beautiful. My heart just melted <3”

There are some other screeching noises in the background as well. Turns out they’re coming from Dagu, the infant’s dad, who’s “reacting to his daughter’s birth.” That’s right – it’s a baby girl!
