Dr Phuong told local media that he never thought the photo would go viral.

“After delivery, I thought him holding the device was interesting, so I took a picture. I never thought it would receive so much attention.” he said.

The baby’s 34-year-old mother claims she had the coil inserted two years earlier but it did not work because she later discovered she was pregnant.

“I was surprised when I got pregnant despite using the contraceptive to stop me from having more children” she told newsmen

Dr Phuong said the device may have been moved from its original position, becoming an ineffective form of contraception and allowing the mother to become pregnant.
