This picture of a baby emerging from his mother’s womb in a C-section birth is absolutely amazing!
Katie Vigos is the doula behind Empowered Birth Project, a movement to celebrate new mothers and childbirth. She posted this amazing photoon the Empowered Birth Project’s Instagram feed, where it has been liked nearly 10,000 times. Scroll down for full image.
She shared the photograph on behalf of Raya (the baby girl pictured in the photo) and her parents. “Our doctor told us ‘OK take a picture’ I said ‘I can’t’ and they all laughed,” the baby’s mother told Vigos. “I looked at [my fiancé] and he was in another world so I yelled ‘Ryan take a picture!’ LOL and these are the results. It was all very surreal. She is such an amazing gift. This is my second #Csection. I hope this photo honors those before me and gives inspiration and strength to those #pregnant or to deliver in the future.”
The photo was taken while the baby was halfway out of her mother’s belly, the umbilical cord is clearly visible.
“Raya Pax Steele Angell” was born safely on August 18, 2016 and weighed in 8 lbs., 5 oz., according to her mother’s Instagram page.
Just beautiful! Poor bub does not look impressed at all.
