Every child is a miracle, and every pregnancy is a beautifully life-changing experience. However, some pregnancies are so surprising that it is safe to say some babies are just determined to be born. And that was exactly Lucy Hellein's story, so she decided to find a unique way to celebrate her child's birth.
Newborn baby clutching a Mirena IUD
Lucy Hellein has created a viral sensation with her birth announcement. Instead of doing traditionally with a photo of the baby, the mom did something special. She posted a picture of the little miracle clutching the failed IUD in his tiny hand. It was her way of sharing her story when the birth control completely failed at keeping her from getting pregnant.

In the caption of the photo, Lucy wrote: "Mirena fail."
The doctors found her Mirena IUD hidden behind her placenta. In an Instagram post, Lucy explained that the baby came as a "HUGE surprise."
The woman demonstrated the picture of her 37-week baby bump and explained that she was part of the 1% who end up pregnant despite using a Mirena IUD.
On the adorable picture, which was taken only a few hours after the birth, baby Dexter's face was adorably squished up as he held the IUD in his little hand. Many people found the picture quite funny.
One Instagram user, @guillermobuendiamx, wrote: "What a picture! What a moment!!!," while another, @kellieamurray, added: "Big boy! He was like...ain't no IUD gonna stop me from coming into the world LOL. Congrats mommy, daddy, and siblings!"
Lucy took to the comments section to add that the baby was not born holding the IUD. A nurse placed it in his hand as a joke to take the photo.
What a memorable picture! Welcome to the world, baby Dexter! We believe you are full of other surprises for your parents!
