mundus-absconditus:

A picture of a baby born “en-caul”, which means that the membrane protecting the baby’s body and head has not yet torn. Normally, this membrane breaks as the birth process commences, and that is commonly referred to as “breaking of water”. En-caul births are very rare, occuring in fewer than 1 on 80,000 births. It is, however, almost always perfectly harmless.

Just a clump of cells, folks.
