    The baby is suppose to hang face down from the mom to clear it's lungs for a while before its born. I don't see anyone hanging that baby down to clear its lungs. It's clearly having trouble breathing. Pulling the mom like that without contractions did major tearing to that alpaca. Did they live?

      The Emergency Alpaca Birth / made me sick to see how untrained that young girl was.

            That baby must have been to big for her to deliver herself besides it being breach

              Questions will not be answered. No the baby did not die.

                Nice vid. A description of why this was happening would help.

                  What vet would allow an animal to suffer like that.... There's no way I'd allow her to touch an animal of mine.... Was a Caesarian not an option or maybe it was "too expensive" Not good

                    Apparently, the lady was not a vet ( one comment mentioned it) but she clearly knew what to do...

                                    Oh my goodness, when only the head was out and the baby was looking around as if to make a choice on whether to stay inside or come out to play!

                                            What a brave girl for not putting up a fuss and trying to push them away. She knew she and her baby were in damn fine hands. Those two people are wonderful!
                                            But those cries were heartbreaking.

                                              Poor girl she must be in so much pain. One of our goats had a baby stuck inside her in the worst position. Both died before we could get it out. I applaud that vet or owner who ever she is for getting that baby turned and out.

                                                That Alpaca is so well behaved. Can't say I wouldn't try to kick at the least.

                                                  THAT was SCARY. I thought the baby was stillborn, because it couldn't or wasn't moving. Terrifying. I would have stayed w/ the baby however, seeing the traumatic birth he endured. I would have stayed w/ the baby instead of walking away & leaving this poor baby to fend for itself. HOPEFULLY, BOTH MOTHER & BABY ARE DOING WELL.

                                                  It takes skill and patience to do this. One must know anatomy forward and backwards. One does’nt just reach in and out pops the kit. Rather a bang up job..both mom and kit survived!

                                                      My only question is why are they separating the mother? As soon as they helped give birth they should have let her have space with her baby. Even if the baby was bloody, what do you think happens in the natural wild? But instead they kept surrounding the baby and keeping the mama on a leash. That to me seems a little sad. They did a good job with the birth though.

A breech birth is a serious emergency for animals and human alike. This woman was on top of this every moment. She got the head out that was the most important part. A description definitely would have helped, maybe the camera a Little Closer. I can understand if they thought it would upset the animal to have people so close, but this does seem like a bit of a long shot for viewing.

You can do serious damage to her as well as the baby if you don't work with nature and wait for the contractions. This baby had it's head out and was breathing so the urgency is over, the mum just needs to finish pushing to get the rest of the baby out. Another thing to take into consideration is when animals are born clear the sack and fluid away from head - nose and mouth specifically - but leave the majority of it for the mother to clean off. Don't wipe with a towel then present a clean dry baby to the mum and wonder why she rejects it.

Feels like hell while it's happening but once it's done, you are like thank you doctor for ending this pain. Looks like Mama is still a little confused wondering if that came out of her or not. Hope she accepts the baby.

I guess it’s a combination of the long neck and long legs it’s really lucky when they do deliver without complications. So much potential for one thing to be bent the wrong way. Great outcome

In moments like this, it makes me grateful for doctors--human and animal! Quite a birth and I'm thankful we got a synopsis of what the mama and vet were dealing with.

Over 100 births each year. Probably closer to 200 per year. And one of the nicest ladies in the ladies in the world. She is amazing.
