Because this baby is our first, we have very little experience of things we must do during labor and delivery. I mean, I know the object is to have a baby, but when it comes to the hospital bag, the order of people you call, announcements and the like, I am totally lost. Fortunately, I have a circle of good friends who are also already parents and I have been able to learn all kinds of invaluable things from their experiences.
One of these in particular has been the pictures before, during and after delivery. I know that labor and delivery can be a little chaotic, so I think it’s especially important to capture these moments so that they can be savored for years to come.
In talking with friends and looking over their pictures from those first precious hours and days, I was able to come up with a list of some of the pictures to capture. These are the top 12 must-take pictures from labor and delivery, as demonstrated by several of my dear friends and their new babies.
What other pictures would you want to capture from your labor, delivery and baby’s first day(s)?
