Mom Takes Incredible Photos of Her Own Labor and Delivery
There are some incredible childbirth photos that have made their way across the internet in recent years, but these particular birth photographs are particularly unique: They were shot by the mom delivering the baby.
 
When she was pregnant with Kailah, Lauren planned on photographing her own labor and delivery. However, she didn’t know exactly how it would go as she had never given birth before.
 
Although she wanted to take pictures of her labor and birth, things in the delivery room got too hectic, so she ended up not taking any photos. You never know what to expect when you go into labor, and that was definitely true with Lauren’s first birth.
 
When Lauren got pregnant with her second child, she knew she could actually do it this time. Although she could have hired a birth photographer to guarantee perfect shots, Lauren knew it would be even more special if she took the pictures herself.
