'Blessed': Newborn Baby Pictured Holding IUD That Couldn't Stop His Conception

She gave birth to her third child, Dexter Tyler, by caesarean section and the surgeon removed her Mirena coil during the operation. Hellein posted the controversial photo of her newborn on Facebook last week, carrying the caption "Mirena fail!"

"I didn't think it would go viral", Hellein said.

While the mother of that baby says the nurse placed the IUD in his hand after he was born, KVUE found out from an Austin doctor that it is possible for a baby to grab it on their own. Hellenin replied, "He was not". Despite what has been said and shared online Dexter was not born holding the Mirena IUD, but she adds he was conceived while the internal contraceptive was inserted.

His mom Lucy Hellein, from Texas, found out she was 18 weeks pregnant in December, reports The Sun.

Gunter also noted that Dexter Tyler, the now internet-famous "baby holding IUD", may not experience any risks despite being exposed to the hormones released when the Mirena was left in place during his mother Lucy Hellein's pregnancy.

The Mirena® IUD is an intrauterine device that is implanted in a woman's uterus, according to the company's official website.

So much for birth control. If a hormonal IUD is inserted at another time in a woman's cycle, it takes seven days before the device is effective, and women should use another type of birth control, such as condoms, during this time, Planned Parenthood says. Mirena is placed inside the uterus, with the larger vertex pointed toward the vagina. "You have a better chance of winning the lotto".

Mushtaler says while abstinence is the only method to avoid pregnancy 100 percent, the IUD is still extremely effective and cases like this are very rare.

But this doesn't mean pregnancy while using an IUD won't occur.

"This woman is very lucky that when the placenta grew over the IUD it did not disrupt the blood flow to the placenta", said the Planned Parenthood nurse.

"He's going to be a week old tomorrow and actually tomorrow was his original due date, which is May 4, which is known as Star Wars Day", she chuckled. "Even my OB said, 'The force is strong with this one'".
