I’ve already told you how magical the moment you see your child for the first time is. After so much imagining, you will materialize dreams and idealizations, be able to touch and give affection and comfort to that little being totally dependent on you and your partner.
If you still haven’t realized how remarkable this moment is, check out a series of photos that record this moment with a lot of passion, emotion, and the fullest feeling possible. It’s a special feeling to witness or to even take part in bringing life to the world!
“This little girl’s mother had just handed her over to her father for some skin-to-skin and this adorable kid was smitten! At the age of less than two hours, she was lifting her head to look him in the eyes.”
“For long years, this couple had yearned for a child. ‘I can hear him wailing from here!’ his sister remarked as I waited for the baby’s father to emerge from the OR. We spotted him a minute later, crying happily and hugging his newborn girl.”
Precious moments will not be forgotten! Welcome to our sweet home, my sweetheart baby.
I love how it seems to be a mandatory part of the birthing process now that the men need to go skin to skin immediately to start the bonding. It’s wonderful and about time!!
“This dad’s pregnant wife and unborn daughter tragically ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ years ago. He has their names tattooed on his ring finger, which is visible in the photo. Later, he met and fell in love with his wife. This is their first son, Jude. Holding him for the first time skin-to-skin was a very emotional moment.”
What a beautiful baby! “I love it when dads do skin-to-skin! This Marine was so gentle and sweet with his newborn son.”
“Amazing mother and incredible father gave birth to their lovely baby in the front seat of their automobile at 12:21 a.m.!” I’m still in awe of their fortitude; their lovely baby couldn’t wait any longer to enter the world, and his father delivered him just minutes after parking his car. There are no words to describe how incredible it was to witness this miracle; more will follow once I am able to record everything! What a crazy night it was for birth photographers.”
So in love with this family!
Welcome to the world sweet babe.”
“There are those moments in life that you know will change you forever. And sometimes in those moments, you just can’t keep it together!”
“This is the couple’s first live birth, they had a still birth just over a year and a half ago. This mom went through 24 hours of labor, and then everything stopped for just over a week. Her water then broke and she was in labor for 30 hours before their son was born. When the baby arrived, they both broke down crying when he took his first breath.”
“Right after they married, this couple decided to have children through adoption, not because of any physical limitations, but because it was what their hearts desired. Their first child, a 2-year-old girl, was adopted the day she was born. So it was a great shock when they relocated to Hawaii and discovered they were pregnant at the same time! Throughout the whole labor, both physically and psychologically, this father was his partner’s rock. Their responses were so different when she pulled her baby to her chest but so awesome!”
“This was this couple’s first girl and their last baby. It was also their first home birth and it just all came together for them. There was so much love in the room. This baby is daddy’s little girl for sure.”
“Moments after watching his first child be delivered, this father tearfully gazes at his wife with such love and admiration.”
“The way they looked at each other. From the first contraction to the moment they held her in their arms, it took my breath away. This is love. This is our family.”
