These are amazing.
It's a moment that changes a family, a mother and the world. The moment a new baby enters the world everything changes. The occasion is momentous, and more and more often photographers are embedded in mothers' birth teams, ready to preserve a family's history as it happens.
And in the age of the internet, these photos don't always stay with the family. Photographers and parents are choosing to share incredible birth images that are changing the way others see birth.
Here are 10 of our favorite viral birth photos that blow our minds.
8. Dad goes viral for "breastfeeding" after baby's birth
In what is probably the cutest photo ever, a dad is "breastfeeding" his newborn baby girl. It's obvious why this photo went viral and we can't even with this photo. When mom was unavailable due to complications, dad did what he had to (nurses hooked up a bottle of milk and dad provided the all-important skin-to-skin contact) and now we have the viral photo to prove it, MOM tattoo and all.
