Witnessing your spouse holding your newborn for the first time is an unforgettable moment, nearly as valuable as the experience of becoming a mother. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your child’s birth or conception, there is an indescribable feeling of seeing your beloved partner with your little one.
Experiencing pregnancy and carrying your baby inside you from the earliest moments is truly a remarkable journey. And having your partner by your side throughout this journey is an admirable undertaking.
Many mothers find giving birth to be a joyous and empowering experience, while for others, it can be a frightening one. Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason, founders of Birth Becomes Her, aim to help people understand the challenges that mothers face during childbirth, as well as inspire other couples. This led them to embark on a journey to capture photographs of mothers giving birth all around the world, as well as capture those precious first moments with their newborns.
Here are some photos captured by various photographers that showcase the beautiful and heartwarming moments of motherhood:
The collection of photos captures mothers cradling their newborns on their chest, sharing the precious moment with their partners, and one emotional mother can be heard sobbing as she says, “I did it. I got her!”
The series also includes shots of the baby’s first moments out of the mother’s womb, capturing the woman’s raw and immediate reaction to becoming a mother.
The moment a mother meets her newborn is a transformative experience, regardless of the circumstances of their birth.
