Midwives at a Brazilian maternity hospital were trying to bath this newborn when she decided she just wanted to walk. YES, walk!

In the below video, a midwife cradles the newborn baby across her chest with one arm and is clearly stunned as the miracle baby wriggles to walk on her own, shares Daily Mail.

The nurse, dressed in surgical robes with a clinical mask over her mouth, cries out in Portuguese in amazement: ‘Oh my gosh, the girl is walking. Good gracious!’

‘Wait let me film this,’ another person in the room can be heard saying.

They then shout for another colleague called Ju to come to witness the amazing moment.

‘Ju, Ju come and see this,’ they cry.

The midwife in the video explains that she has been trying to give the baby a bath but the child just wants to get up and walk.

‘Merciful father. I was trying to wash her here and she keeps getting up to walk,’ she says as she points with one hand to where she initially tried to lay the baby down to give the child her very first bath.

‘She has walked from here to here,’ she says pointing across the distance the newborn has already covered.

The video clip has been viewed millions of times after it was uploaded to social media on Friday.

As one of our MoM members did remind us the walking reflex is usually checked at discharge or at a health clinic checkup.

  • i thought that it was just advanced reflexes lol


  • Amazing!


  • Really very special. I saw it in Facebook a couple of days ago. Good that the nurses made the video. I’m sure the parents of that little girl would love a copy!


  • How amazing is that indeed ! Look at her going so shortly after birth, what a wee trooper !!


  • Is it actually walking or more a case of natural reflexes?


  • This baby is a miracle. In the video the baby appears to be very long too.
    Normally it is always recommended that baby has tummy time to strengthen neck and other muscles, then crawls which also strengthens other muscles before walking. Crawling is supposed to strengthen back muscles.


  • I had seen this earlier in the news and yes it is truly amazing.


  • It is hard to believe but yes it’s true!


  • I saw this video last night and couldn’t believe it. Absolutely amazing!
