Beautiful image highlights how different child birth is for each mother.

This amazing photo was shared on the Facebook page of US photographer “Emily Robinson Photography.”

The caption reads: “Daddy’s greatest catch.”

AMAZING! I think this captures that moment so beautifully. Daddy will never make another “great catch” like that again in a hurry.

Another birth pic shared on Facebook that caught our eye recently was this image captioned:

“The best position to give birth is one that chooses the woman, the midwives have to adapt.”

The image appears to be of a woman sitting on her partners lap while labouring through her birth process.

Many followers of the page were in awe of the image. Comments included….
“I love the idea of giving birth in the legs of the dad.”

“Totally agree!
On My 2nd birth I chose and gave birth sitting.
It was great!! Nothing to do with the 1° in the traditional position “

“Precious capture and very very significant. It is all in the picture. Bravo.”

“That’s the way it should be… As the mom wants”

“yep, done that, and been covered in amniotic fluid, and mummy poo….all in a day/night’s work.”

“Bravo for those fantastic midwives who know how to adapt to the baby and the mother! I admire you. And Bravo for the work / Gynaecologists / as that are occurring account and make the immense effort of swimming upstream”

Such an amazing photo. Definitely not for me, but I admire that many women find comfort in all kinds of positions.

  • I think each persons birth stories and birth photos are sacred. I know some people may not like seeing them and some people may share them on platforms that need to be reconsidered. I however think birth is beautiful and love seeing the various ways other women choose to birth and capture their births.

  • Birth photos are so captivating. I happily gave birth on my back as I was nice and comfy!

  • Midwives are incredible. Birth is a miracle. It’s hard, exhausting, exceedingly painful, and somewhat debilitating, and yet so utterly worth it. But with all the hard work that the mother and even the father put in to have the baby, those amazing women and men who nurture us through our journeys and help us get through the tunnel at the end, are total angels. I wouldn’t be alive without my midwives, more than once. :)

  • I think women should feel comfortable to do what works for them. I am not sure why anyone else needs to have an opinion on what other women do as parents or when pregnant. Good on them I say!

  • I gave birth in the normal way. These images are pretty amazing but for me, during that time, would have been so uncomfortable! An awesome experience for a dad delivering his own baby though!!

  • I don’t need images. 14 years on following a very traumatic birth it is still very vivid in my mind. It’s why I did not have another child.

  • The photo is beautiful. I had a normal birth in hospital. But I would have loved to give birth in water. I think it’s amazing.

  • My 1st birth took 40 hours stop & start with no sleep, in the end I had no choice as my baby was stuck & struggling & I was strapped down in stirrups. Definitely not the style of birth you want & barely any pain relief because he was in distress. The OB had not detected that his placenta had depleted in any of the regular check ups I had with him during the final stages of pregnancy plus he was busy running between 2 hospitals. He was delivering 3 babies at once just in my hospital, one of those sadly being a still born so due to that none of us got much individual attention. Because of this I refused an OB with my 2nd child & had a midwife who was trained for high risk difficult births, the on call OB popped his head round the corner of the door to check on me & I told him to get lost. I was able to be in a position where I was comfortable squatting on the bed & holding on the bed-head, gave me so much more control of the actual birth. I presented at the hospital around 2am & waited for labour to establish then my 2nd son was born by 8am. What a huge difference in how my children were born by taking control of it instead of being told by the OB to lay down so he could lock me in stirrups. The only time the OB was present was when I had to be stitched up after the birth was all over.
    One thing I learned was that you can’t plan a delivery because there are so many things that can change or go wrong. Listen to the midwife & consider her advice, she should know since she does this multiple times each day, take up whatever position you feel works for you.

  • That might be a bit uncomfortable for me personally. But it does look like it would have been a very intimate birthing experience

  • Most mothers here in Aust. are not given the choice to do much other than go to their local hospital where it is so clinical. It is changing – but oh so slowly. Good on this couple for doing what they wanted.

  • Very sensible yet unusal for most. this is ok if all is going to plan.. One would have difficulty seeing the cord wrapped around the neck several times in this position. Just observing.

  • Agree I had water births and they where amazing. Such a powerful image
