Moment blind mother looks at her newborn child for first time

A video that went viral this week showed a legally blind mother in Canada getting to look at her newborn child for the first time thanks to vision-enhancing glasses.

The video posted to YouTube shows 29-year-old Kathy Beitz seeing her newborn boy with the aid of a bulky black headset.

“For the first baby that I get to actually look at, being my own is very overwhelming,” Beitz said in the popular video.

Beitz has genetic macular degeneration known as Stargardt disease.

She was able to see her new son with the aid of eSight glasses that enhance video in real time. The enhanced images allow people who are not totally blind to see the world around them.

“She gave birth and she instantly wanted to see him,” said Yvonne Felix, Beitz’s sister who posted the video about the moment.

Felix, who has the same disease, is raising money so more people can access the expensive glasses at makeblindnesshistory.com.
