Childbirth is one of the most beautiful moments in life. There is nothing more heartwarming than the moment a couple first becomes parents. Often, the reaction of the mother is the focus and the moment that she first sees her child.
But there’s another person who’s right alongside mom that people sometimes forget about–and that’s dad!
Father’s day was this past weekend. In celebration of fathers everywhere, why not take the time to appreciate some beautiful professional photos of new Fathers in the delivery room?
Some of them will make you laugh, others will make you cry, and they will all definitely remind you of the joys of childbirth.
1. Although it may surprise you, dads can get emotional too! These reactions are timeless and touching and really capture the essence of real life. Like this photo of a dad helping with the birth of twins. This was voted Image of the Year by the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers.
2. Skin to skin contact is super important for newborn babies. This baby’s mom passed her off to Dad for his turn and look how happy she is!
3. These dads had their skin to skin contact with the baby born from a surrogate mother in Kingston, Ontario. Frank Nelson and BJ Barone are clearly smitten.
4. Clearly, this dad is overwhelmed with emotion! This baby was literally just born and it looks like he’s still attached to his mom!
