"My first born. Her little heart was in distress, so we had to get her out fast. With not enough time for a C-section, we opted for use of a vacuum. It helped ease her head out and I was able to push her the rest of the way. She is a perfect three-year-old now. Life is beautiful."

"This photo was taken shortly after giving birth to my first son whose gender was a surprise. Not in the delivery room because we were blessed with a successful home birth (after two hospital births). This was the strongest, most feminine I have ever felt in my life!"—kristiny44e222401

"This is where my water broke (as you can see the wet spot on my gown). We had this relaxing plan where he would lightly mist me in the face with lavender water when things got intense ... yeah, this is also where I tell him to shove that lavender mist you-know-where or I was going to rip his arm off."—Jameelee Skidmore, Facebook

"My sister-in-law is a photographer and we invited her to be in the delivery room when our son was born so she could do some birth photography. She captured this amazing photo of my husband overcome with joy as our son took his first breaths. I'm so grateful to have this photo to look back on because it was such an amazing moment in real time."—adonabella / Diana Bellack Photography

"I died laughing at this picture. The look on my face says, 'What the 'F' just happened?!' and the look on my son's face is 'b*tch I do what I want!' I barely made it to the hospital, he was born within five minutes of me getting there. Most women get these beautiful natural childbirth photos, but I got this!"—nanoregi
