Watching a mother carry twins in her body, and then giving birth to two babies is beyond incredible. When I think of TWO little babies inside mama, sharing a womb and being connected long before these littles see the light of the world makes my heart flutter.
We asked our Birth Becomes Her photographers to share with us some of their favorite twin images, and here are my (Monet's) favorites. Get ready to be blown away!
All I can say is WOW! A perfect window into the womb; into their life before they are earthside. Amazing, amazing, AH-mazing capture by Kimberlin Gray Photography.
I love this moment. Mom labors with Baby B, as she holds Baby A in her arms. I wish more providers would wait patiently for moms to deliver vaginally. This photo and the gorgeous photo of both babies earthside below by Aly Renee Photography.
