In celebration of Mother’s Day and all the magic that accompanies being a new mom, Birth Becomes Her released a short video that beautifully depicts the moment mom lays eyes on her baby for the first time.
Birth Becomes Her is a photography company that shares raw, diverse and provocative birth stories with the world. Their website is “a place to share and celebrate the authentic beauty of birth through birth stories and resources for birth photographers.”
Three and a half minutes long, this video is as beautiful as it is inspiring, reminding us that being a mother is a gift that we can’t fully comprehend until we see our child for the first time.
