Ever looked at a newborn and wondered how that little body, complete with head, arms and legs, could fit inside another human?

Marry Fermont is a photographer who lives in the Netherlands and captures amazing pictures of babies after birth in their pre-birth positions.

Marry took her first photo of this kind when she saw a midwife showing a couple the way their baby was positioned inside the womb straight after birth, and says that almost all babies fold back up this way when held for the photographs.

Take a look at her stunning collection of photographs and just TRY to stop your ovaries from exploding….








Did you have any post-birth snaps taken?
