The period shortly after death seems to be a strange thing. During this time, the body has undergone various changes, from being alive to being completely dead. Although some of these changes (such as hardening and discoloration) can be seen in crime TV shows, other changes seem far-fetched for the human body.
Nonetheless, what the corpse can do is shocking and creepy. From the birth of the awareness of death, the changes in the body after death are almost unrealistic and impossible to achieve. The following list is not suitable for the faint-hearted or those with stomach problems.
Unfortunately, death does not have a moral compass, and anyone, even those who are pregnant, can fall victim to its embrace.
Giving birth while alive is a beautiful experience; giving birth after one has died is the complete opposite, especially for those dealing with the dead body. These “births” are referred to as “coffin births” due to them happening inside coffins. Basically, the pressure of gases building up within the deceased pushes the fetus out. The fetus has to be positioned in just the right (or wrong) way for this to occur.
Even though most of these cases of coffin birth occurred during times without the benefits of modern medicine, they still happen to this day. In January 2018, a woman in South Africa, who had died suddenly ten days prior, shocked people at the funeral home when they saw that she had given birth inside her coffin. The woman had been nine months pregnant at the time of her death, and all arrangements for her funeral had been made when the staff made the spine-chilling discovery that her body had expelled the fetus after death.
