Nothing quite like having a baby who immediately mocks your attempts at birth control.
That is what one Idaho woman showed was the case, when her newborn emerged while clutching her IUD.

Prior to giving birth, Violet Quick shared multiple TikTok videos in which she talked about being pregnant despite using birth control — in this case, an IUD. She discovered the pregnancy after being nauseous for about two consecutive weeks and taking six pregnancy tests.
It likely took her that long to believe it.
But the news was confirmed, when she finally went to the hospital to get checked out. Interestingly, IUDs are believed to be about 99 percent effective when it comes to birth control, even more than a vasectomy for a man.
A Miracle Baby?
“It’s better to know because there is a high risk of having ectopic pregnancies when you have an IUD,” Quick said in one video. “They work for the most part, but someone has to be the 1 percent, and that’s me and my baby.”
As for your baby emerging from the womb while clutching the very method you used for birth control? Yeah, that’s likely even less than one percent.
But for Quick, it happened, and not only did this baby beat the odds, but it also made sure everyone knew exactly by how much. Talk about a slap in the face, am I right? Still, a baby is a baby, so there’s that! Welcome to the world, little man. You sure did fight hard to get here!
Quick, 20, has since set her videos on her pregnancy to private, though some are available via other people’s TikTok accounts.
