OMG i saw a birth???? #304608

Ok this morning I was trying to get my baby boy from out of the pouch with his parents. What I normally do is take the pouch and push it upward. When I did this I saw mom with this little pink thing on the top of her tail. Then I saw her belly where she had made a trail for the new baby to follow to the pouch. I immediately placed the pouch down. Now, my question to you is should I be alarmed and is there a chance that the baby might make it???? I mean it was going the wrong direction. Also the parents were mating on the 15th and 16th of may but if she is giving birth today then she got pregnant on the 18th-19th is it possible that she is having a second batch? Or could she just be delivering late?????

I wouldn't be too worried about the dates, but honestly I don't know why the baby would be going the wrong way?

If mommy is licking a trail she may just be able to swing her tail on over and the baby could pick up the trail from there?

Someone will be along soon who knows more.... very very interested to know the answer to this one!

Oh I'm sorry i meant it was at the back of her tail where the tail begins and the back meet. I don't know why it went that way. Maybe because the mom has no room in the pouch. There are three in one pouch. There are more in the case but they choose to sleep in that one.

Have you looked in the pouch since? To see if the baby made it into mom's pouch or fell off?

I was out wandering around in my yard roflmao

Anyway, to answer your question, sometimes the joey goes the wrong way. Usually the mother will nudge the joey and get it going back in the right direction. There is definitely a chance that the joey will survive in spite of your accidentally interupting the birth thumb Just wait and see what happens, there's nothing else you can really do. As for the joey being born today instead of a few days ago, it is possible that she just held the joey in stasis for a few days for some reason dunno

Moisten your fingertips and then gently pick the joey up and place it near the opening of the pouch. The mother should immediately start licking the joey & the trail again.
