In the wild, animals give birth without any human intervention. They go through labor on their own and even have to deal with unexpected pregnancy complications. Even after the baby is born, the new mother has only her instincts to rely on when raising her baby. In captivity, animals are given space when in labor.
Vets and keepers will only step in if it is absolutely necessary. One panda had to go through three days of labor, and it must have been excruciating for everyone involved. Everyone had feared that the baby had died in the womb. Labor that lasts that long can’t possibly have a good outcome. The camera caught the miracle – no one could believe their eyes when the baby was alive!
