It doesn’t matter how many times we see pictures of women giving birth, it blows our mind every single time.
I really wish I’d had photo or video of the moment I gave birth to my kids. I may have throat-punched anyone who dared go near my vagina with a camera at the time, but at this point in my life, I think it would be amazing to have some more tangible memories to draw on other than those that reside in my mind.
Here’s a beautiful collection of childbirth photographs taken by pregnancy and birth photographer, Melissa Jean. Melissa manages to capture the raw emotion and most amazing images of birth and bonding between newborns and their parents.
These pictures are just incredible.
