Need a break from human baby issues? How about a super cute, brand new baby dolphin water birth!? Friday morning at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium, Pacific white-sided dolphin Tique, gave birth to a cute little calf. There are fewer than 20 Pacific white-sided dolphins in facilities in North America according to ABC News, so this birth is an amazing and rare event indeed. Watch this adorable video of the birth and see how new mama Tique encourages her little one to the surface for its first breath. The baby calf's gender has not been determined, but the calf was approximately 3-foot, 30-pounds at birth and both baby and mama are in good shape according to Shedd aquarium officials. These sweet dolphins will not be on public display until aquarium staff are absolutely sure that mama and baby bonding has happened without a hitch. Good advice for human mamas too - after your baby arrives, take some time for just you and your new family, minus crowds of friends and family.
